Welcome to Cryptocephalinae of the World

Welcome to Cryptocephalinae of the World

This Scratchpad serves to maintain images, an updated classification, and bibliography of cryptocephaline leaf beetles. Currently, focus is largely on Stegnocephala, New World Cryptocephalus, and Fulcidacini; however, with time and collaboration we hope to build upon this work. Images are based almost exclusively on types, but authoritatively identified material is also included. The identity of most species herein is finally confirmed after almost 150 years since their original description.

Contributions and collaborations are welcome. Please contact the administrator.
