Abstract

Trichesthes Erichson, 1847 is currently a synonym of Phyllophaga (s. lato), but its taxonomic status merits review. Based on a phylogenetic analysis of external morphological and genitalic characters, Trichesthes is revalidated as a monophyletic genus that includes two of the nine species originally placed in Trichesthes, as well as 38 other species currently classified in the Phyllophaga subgenera Phytalus, Listrochelus and Phyllophaga (s. str.).
