93 new species of "monkey beetles"

Post by alandmor »

A new monograph on the genus Amblymelanoplia in South Africa (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae: Hopliini) with descriptions of an incredible 93 new species. Members of this tribe are commonly known as "monkey beetles". It's amazing how much there still is to learn out there!
