Abstract

Calomicrus jungchangi Lee and Beenen, new species, is described, and a similar species, Monolepta rufofulva Chûjô, 1938, is redescribed and a lectotype designated. Male and female reproductive systems are illustrated in detail. Calomicrus jungchangi is easily distinguished from other Taiwanese members of Calomicrus Dillwyn by its characteristic color. It inhabits marine shorelines, probably because of its close association with its host plant, Ipomoea pes-caprae subspecies brasiliensis (L.) van Ooststr.
