Description

New Caledonia is an isolated Gondwanan fragment with numerous interesting animals and plants, including at least 200 species of leaf-beetles.

The New Caledonian leaf beetle fauna is relatively poorly described, yet there are several significant taxa present, including a new genus described as a result of this project.
