TL;DR: A taxonomic revision of 28 species of the genus Chrysina Kirby (Scarabaeidae: Rutelinae): Rutelini) found in Panama (25), Colombia (2), and Ecuador (3) is presented in this paper .
Abstract: The work is a taxonomic revision of 28 species of the genus Chrysina Kirby (Scarabaeidae: Rutelinae: Rutelini) found in Panama (25), Colombia (2), and Ecuador (3). Chrysina tricolor (Ohaus), Chrysina chalcothea (Bates), and Chrysina cupreomarginata (F. Bates) are new re­cords for Panama. A new country record from northern Colombia is confirmed for Chrys­ina mercedesae Barria. Chrysina gaitalica Curoe and Hawks and Chrysina galbina Hawks are discovered at new localities in Panama; females of both species are discovered and described. Chrysina aurora (Bates) known from other localities in the west of the country, is rediscov­ered in Veraguas province 147 years after its description based on a female, the only specimen that had been collected in the province. Chrysina wolfi (Ohaus) is placed as a new junior syn­onym of Chrysina argenteola (Bates). A neotype is designated for Chrysina ohausi (Franz) according to ICZN Article 75.3. The oreicola group is proposed to include Chrysina oreicola (Morón). Photographs of adults, illustrations of diagnostic characters, distribution maps, and taxonomic keys (in English and Spanish) for the identification of the species present in Pan­ama, Colombia and Ecuador are presented. El presente trabajo consiste en una revisión taxonómica de 28 especies del género Chrysina Kirby (Scarabaeidae: Rutelinae: Rutelini), 25 presentes en Panamá, 2 en Colombia y 3 en Ecua­dor. Chrysina tricolor (Ohaus), Chrysina chalcothea (Bates) y Chrysina cupreomarginata (F. Bates) son nuevos registros para Panamá. Se confirma un nuevo registro del norte de Co­lombia correspondientes a Chrysina mercedesae Barria. Chrysina gaitalica Curoe y Hawks y Chrysina galbina Hawks se descubren en nuevas localidades de Panamá; se descubren y des­criben hembras de ambas especies. Chrysina aurora (Bates) conocida en otras localidades del oeste del país, es redescubierta en la provincia de Veraguas después de 147 años desde su des­cripción a partir de una hembra, único ejemplar que había sido recolectado en la provincia. Chrysina wolfi (Ohaus) se considera una nueva sinonimia menor de Chrysina argenteola (Bates). Se asigna un neotipo a Chrysina ohausi (Franz) por aplicación del artículo 75.3 del CINZ. Se propone el grupo oreicola para incluir a Chrysina oreicola (Morón). Se presentan fotografías de adultos, ilustraciones de caracteres diagnósticos, mapas de distribución y cla­ves taxonómicas (en Inglés y Español) para la identificación de las especies presentes en Pa­namá, Colombia y Ecuador.
