Abstract :

The paper presents remarks on the validity of the subgenus Alledoya Hicks, 1950 of the genus Cassida Linnaeus, 1758 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae). The subgenus Alledoya Hicks, 1950 is redefined and reviewed. Some diagnostic characters for the species of Alledoya Hicks, 1950 are introduced. The subgenus is distributed in the western part of Palaearctic Region. Accordingly, a key for identification of the species of subgenus Alledoya Hincks, 1950 and the closely related subgenus Lasiocassis Gressitt, 1952 is also given.
