New species of Aphthona (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Alticinae) and key to Iberian species of Aphthona hammarstroemi group

  • Andrés Baselga (a1) and Francisco Novoa (a1)

Abstract

Aphthona sandraesp.nov. is described from specimens collected on Euphorbia polygalifolia Boiss. et Reuter (Euphorbiaceae) in Galicia, Spain. Its relationship with Aphthona ovata Foudras and the Aphthona hammarstroemi Jacobson group of species is established. A key to the species of this group occurring in the Iberian peninsula is provided. Aphthona herbigrada (Curtis) and Aphthona espagnoli Kral, previously not belonging to any group, are here considered belonging to the A. hammarstroemi group.

On trouvera ici la description d’Aphthona sandraesp.nov. à partir de spécimens récoltés sur Euphorbia polygalifolia Boiss. et Reuter (Euphorbiaceae) en Galicia, Espagne. Sa relation avec Aphthona ovata Foudras et le groupe d’espèces d’Aphthona hammarstroemi Jacobson est établie. Une clé permettra l’identification des espèces ibériques appartenant à ce groupe. Avant notre étude, Aphthona herbigrada (Curtis) et Aphthona espagnoli Kral n’appartenaient pas à aucun groupe : ces espèces sont maintenant considérées comme appartenant au groupe d’A. hammarstroemi.
