Iphimeis dives Germar (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) was recorded feeding on young and mature leaves of Inga edulis Mart. (Fabaceae) plants in the urban area of Lavras, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, in Nov 2013 and Nov 2014 at the beginning of the rainy season. Iphimeis dives males and females were brought to the laboratory for species identification, and fecundity characteristics (the proportion of females laying eggs, number of eggs per mass, and the period of time required for an act of oviposition) were determined. Inga edulis is added to the host plant list for I. dives. Each female of this species deposited 69.2 ± 10.6 eggs in a single mass in 2.6 ± 1.1 d (± SE).
