Cotinis spp burmeister in mexico coleoptera melolonthidae cetoniinae



Cotinis spp burmeister in mexico coleoptera melolonthidae cetoniinae



Acta Zoologica Mexicana Nueva Serie (28): 1-52



A taxonomic synopsis of the 15 species of the genus Cotinis Burm. occurring in Mexico is presented. The basic characters of the structure of the clipeal and frontal processes are used as well as geographic distribution in redefining the subgenera Cotinis (sensu stricto), Criniflava Goodrich, and LIBEROCERA (new subgenus). A diagnosis, illustrations of distinctive characters, life history data, locality records, and distribution maps are presented for each species. Three new species are described: Cotinis (Cotinis) orientalis from Tamaulipas, Hidalgo and Puebla States; Cotinis (Cotinis) sphyracera from Veracruz State; and Cotinis (Liberocera) ibarrai from Guerrero State. A dichotomous key, both in English and Spanish, is given to separate the 15 species. Lastly, a general commentary is given on geographic distribution and ecology that emphasizes the importance of Mexico as a center of diversification of the genus. Sixty-eight percent of the species occur here, including endemic as well as generally distributed species. [The following species are discussed: C. producta, C. mutabilis, C. punctatostriata, C. laticornis, C. pauperula, C. pueblensis, C. impia, C. rufipennis, C. antonii, C. subviolacea, C. fuscopicea, C. viridicyanea].
