The first attempt on subgeneric composition of Chlorophorus Chevrolat, 1863 with four new subgenera (Col.: Cerambycidae: Cerambycinae)

Abstract :

The paper gives the first attempt on subgeneric composition of Chlorophorus Chevrolat, 1863. As a result of this, a total of 5 subgenera (including the nominotypical subgenus) are described for the world fauna as Chlorophorus (s. str.) Chevrolat, 1863; Chlorophorus (Immaculatus) subgen. n.; Chlorophorus (Perderomaculatus) subgen. n.; Chlorophorus (Humeromaculatus) subgen. n. and Chlorophorus (Crassofasciatus) subgen. n.. The type species of new taxa are figured. A key for subgenera is also given in the text
