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

Colaspis is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. It is one of the largest genera in the subfamily, containing over 200 species, and it is known from both North and South America. A number of species from this genus are considered to be pests, such as the grape colaspis. Some species are known from the fossil record from the Eocene of Colorado in the United States.

<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.

<i>Afroeurydemus</i> Genus of leaf beetles from Africa

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.

Eumolpini Tribe of leaf beetles

Eumolpini is a tribe of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. It is the largest tribe in the subfamily, with approximately 170 genera found worldwide. Members of the tribe almost always have a longitudinal median groove on the pygidium, which possibly helps to keep the elytra locked at rest. They also generally have a subglabrous body, as well as appendiculate pretarsal claws.

Promecosoma is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. There are 26 described species in Promecosoma. Most species are found in Mexico, though two species are also known from southern Arizona.

Spintherophyta is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. Most species in the genus are found in Central and South America, but there are also a few North American species.

<i>Typophorus</i> Genus of leaf beetles from North and South America

Typophorus is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. There are at least 53 described species in Typophorus. Similar genera include Paria and Tijucana. Typophorus itself is probably polyphyletic.

Colasposoma fairmairei is a species of leaf beetle. It is distributed in Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sudan. It was described by Édouard Lefèvre in 1877.

Thysbina is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. 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 in 1941, Thysbina is actually a synonym of Colasposoma, though this proposed synonymy has been ignored in later works.

Metaxyonycha is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae.

Nodocolaspis is a genus of leaf beetles in the subfamily Eumolpinae. They are known from Central America and South America. The genus was first established by the Czech entomologist Jan Bechyné in 1949, as a relative of Nodonota containing species formerly placed in Colaspis.

Afroeurydemus caliginosus is a species of leaf beetle from Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was first described by Édouard Lefèvre in 1891, as a species of Syagrus.
