Abstract

Larvae are characterized for Adelonia sulcatulus LeConte, Wattius cucullatus Pascoe, Phaleromela globosa (LeConte), Adelina bifurcata (Champion), and Bius estriatus LeConte. Larval features clearly place Adelonia in Lagriinae, Wattius in Toxicini, and Adelina in Diaperini. Certain characters of Phaleromela are as similar to those of Platydema as to Phaleria. The generalized larva of Bius does not unequivocally specify its position, but suggests that placement in Tenebrionini is correct. Dysantini is placed as a new synonym under Toxicini.
