Revision of the subgenus Anopachys MOTSCHULSKY, 1860 of the genus Chrysolina MOTSCHULSKY, 1860 (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Chrysomelinae).
Genus, 1998, vol. 9 (2): 95-153.

Ten species, Chrysolina aurichalcea with three subspecies, Ch. eurina, Ch. schatzmayri, Ch. gensanensis, Ch. quadrangulata, Ch. lineigera, Ch. lineella, Ch. relucens and two new species: Ch. neglecta (Khabarovsk Terr. and Primorski Krai) and Ch. pala (Primorski Krai), are included in the subgenus Anopachys herewith. Type specimens of eleven taxa belonging to Anopachys are examined. Having examined the type of Chrysomorpha quadrangulata, which has been suppressed as a synonym of Ch. aurichalcea, I have concluded that Ch. quadrangulata is a good species. Intraspecific variation of Ch. aurichalcea is studied in detail on the basis of material from the whole area. Some biological data are given. Twelve taxa are excluded from the subgenus Anopachys.
