Thysbina is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. [2] It is known from Africa. It was first established by the German entomologist Julius Weise in 1902, for several species from Colasposoma as well as three new species. According to Louis Jules Léon Burgeon  [ nl ] in 1941, Thysbina is actually a synonym of Colasposoma, [3] though this proposed synonymy has been ignored in later works. [4]

<i>Rhembastus</i> Genus of leaf beetles

Rhembastus is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae, native to Africa. Whilst the taxonomy of the genus is disputed, the genus has been suggested as a biological control agent for Bryophyllum delagoense in Australia.

Syagrus is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. They are known from the mainland of Africa as well as Madagascar. They are often attracted by plants in the family Malvaceae; Syagrus rugifrons and Syagrus calcaratus are pests of cotton. The larvae of Syagrus calcaratus attack the roots of the plant and cause it to wilt.

Afroeurydemus is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae, found in Africa. The genus was separated from Eurydemus in 1965 by Brian J. Selman, who moved all African species of Eurydemus he had seen to this genus or related African genera and considered it likely that Eurydemus was restricted to Fiji. Many species were also originally placed in Syagrus.
