Introduction

Colombian tortoise beetles [Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae, in the new sense excl. the tribes Cephaloleiini (= Imatidiini) and Spilophorini] (Borowiec 1995, Staines 2002, Sekerka 2014) are poorly known because most data are devoted to original descriptions of new taxa and no regional catalogues or checklists have been published (Borowiec and Świętojańska 2014b). Although 221 species were recorded from the country hitherto, most of them have been noted without precise location or even province name (Borowiec 1999). The most recent data of several dozen species were published by Borowiec (1996, 2002a, 2009b) based on materials from various museums and private collections but outside Colombian institutions. Recently, we had the opportunity to study specimens preserved in the Museo Entomológico UNAB, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá. The collection includes specimens representing 87 species of tortoise beetles, including one species new to science and 16 species new to the country. The material was collected in the last fifty years and most specimens are well-labeled with department and locality data, including geographical coordinates. In this paper we describe this new species of Cyrtonota Chevrolat, 1837, after reviewing the material preserved in the Museo Entomológico UNAB, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, and provide a checklist of 238 species of tortoise beetles known from Colombia, including department data for each taxon, when available.

Methods

Taxa in the faunistic list below are arranged alphabetically, by tribe, genus and species. Geographical coordinates are in DMS format.The new species was identified to the genus Cyrtonota based on previous studies (Borowiec 2007a, 2009a; Sekerka 2007) that examined all the other known species.

Photos were taken using Nikon SMZ 1500 stereomicroscope with Nikon Coolpix 4500 photo camera as several separate layers and combined in the Helicon Focus software. Exact label data are cited for type material. A forward slash (/) separates different lines.

Description of a new species

Cyrtonota abrili Borowiec & Świętojańska, sp. n.

Type locality

Colombia, Antioquia department, Envigado city, El Salado quarter, 1573 m a.s.l.

Type material

Holotype: “Colombia, Antioquia, / Envigado El Salado / 1.573 m alt. / En: Maleza Oct-1991 / G. Abril R.”; two reticulate paratypes: the same data; spotted paratype “Colombia, Antioquia, / La Estrella 1.764 m alt. / En: Piperus sp. / Abr-1985 V.A. Cortés M.”; spotted paratype: “Colombia, Caldas, / Versalles / En: Pinnus patula / Jun-1991 G. Abril R.” (holotype and three paratypes preserved in the Museo Entomológico UNAB, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia, one paratype in the Department of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Taxonomy, Zoological Institute, University of Wrocław, Wrocław, Poland).

Diagnosis

Black antennae, rounded basal pronotal angles, large scutellum, indistinct sexual dimorphism, venter of pronotum without antennal grooves, short last segment of tarsi, short prosternal collar, antennae with five basal glabrous segments and antennomeres 4 and 5 approximately as long as antennomere 3 place this species in the genus Cyrtonota. Cyrtonota abrili belongs to the group of species with dorsum without metallic tint. The group was keyed by Borowiec (2007a, with a modification in 2009a) and characters of C. abrili lead to the couplet 13:

13 Pronotum with two spots of extremely dense vestiture 14
Pronotum without spots of extremely dense vestiture 16
14 Suture and humeral calli partly or completely black 15
Suture and humeral calli the same colour as rest of elytra, fulvous to brown. Peru C. caprishensis Sekerka
15 Pronotum almost semicircular. Ground colour of elytra paler, yellowish-brown. Suture completely black. Basal antennal segments yellowish ventrally. Colombia C. lurida (Spaeth)
Pronotum subtrapezoidal. Ground colour of elytra darker, brown. Suture only in anterior part black. Antennae uniformly black. Ecuador C. aurovestita (Spaeth)
16 Elytra with red reticulation or with red reticulate spots 17
Elytra without red reticulation or red reticulate spots 20
17 Elytra on whole surface with red reticulation 18
Elytra with red irregular spots or only partly with red reticulation 17a
17a Elytra, on both, disc and explanate margin with irregular reticulation or only explanate margin with large, red, irregular spot. Colombia 17b
Elytra with six red reticulate spots: two in postscutellar impression, one in the middle of margin of disc and two on slope. Brazil: Bahia C. bondari (Spaeth)
17b Pronotum more transverse, length/width ratio 2.34. Body stouter, approximately as long as wide, elytral disc forms almost regular, very high gibbosity, punctation of disc very coarse, punctures mostly touching each other, red spot on explanate margin almost round. Colombia C. pyramidata (Boheman)
Pronotum less transverse, length/width ratio 1.85–1.97. Body slimmer, longer than wide, elytral disc with high gibbosity in postscutellar area but less convex after the gibbosity, punctation of disc fine, distance between punctures mostly three to four times wider than puncture diameter, red spot on explanate margin elongate. Colombia C. abrili sp. n.

Description

Holotype: length 12.4 mm, width 10.6, length of pronotum 3.3 mm, width of pronotum 6.4 mm, length/width ratio 1.17, width/length ratio of pronotum 1.94; paratypes: length 11.3–13.7 mm, width 10.4–13.2 mm, length of pronotum 3.4–3.7 mm, width of pronotum 6.3–7.2 mm, length/width ratio 1.04–1.14, width/length ratio of pronotum 1.85–1.97. Body stout, elytra regularly rounded on sides, apex of elytra angulate but not elongate or acuminate (Figs 1, 3).

Figures 1–4. 

Cyrtonota abrili sp. n. 1 holotype dorsal 2 holotype lateral 3 paratype dorsal 4 paratype lateral. Scale bar: 5 mm.

Pronotum and scutellum black. Ground colour of elytra black, in holotype and two paratypes disc with red reticulation in postscutellar impressions, along posterior half of suture and along posterior half of lateral margin of disc, and explanate margin of elytra in anterior third with large red, reticulate spot (Fig. 1); in two other paratypes elytral disc completely black and explanate margin of elytra in anterior third with large red spot without reticulation but with irregular borders and few dark punctures (Fig. 2). Head, antennae, legs and ventrites uniformly black, sometimes last sternite on sides with small, transverse, yellowish-brown spot.

Pronotum transverse, with maximum width approximately in the middle, sides broadly rounded, anterior margin straight or with small triangular emargination in the middle. Surface of disc dull with thin, partly shiny, median, longitudinal line and fine, shallow and very sparse punctation, distance between punctures many times wider than puncture diameter. Explanate margin of pronotum distinctly bordered from disc, on sides with short but deep impression, surface dull, similarly punctate as disc, in some specimens with fine irregular wrinkles.

Scutellum small, triangular, without transverse groove. Base of elytra much wider than pronotum, humeri moderately protruding anterad, humeral angles rounded. Disc very convex, with large but obtuse postscutellar tubercle (Figs 2, 4). Surface in reticulate specimens with thin red reticulation in postscutellar impressions partly extending to latero-basal parts of elytral tubercle, thin red reticulation along both sides of suture and along posterior part of sides of disc, the lateral reticulation joined with red reticulate spot on explanate margin. In dark specimens elytral disc without red reticulation. Dark surface of disc in dark specimens regular, in reticulate specimens slightly irregular with fine and very sparse punctation, dull, distance between punctures mostly three to four times wider than puncture diameter. Whole surface of disc covered with sparse erect setae. Explanate margin of elytra in widest part as wide as half width of disc, in reticulate specimens in anterior third with large, oval, red reticulate spot. In dark specimens the spot is mostly solid, only with irregular margin and several dark punctures but not appears distinctly reticulate. Dark surface of explanate margin regular, dull, punctate similarly as disc. Apex of elytral epipleura without erect hairs.

Ventrites typical for the genus Cyrtonota, without diagnostic characters. Genitalia not dissected, in the genus Cyrtonota male genitalia are not diagnostic, and spermathecae are not diagnostic within genera of the tribe Mesomphaliini (Borowiec and Opalińska 2007 and unpublished data).

Etymology

Named after the collector, G. Abril, of four of the five specimens of the type series.

Distribution

Antioquia and Caldas departments of north-western Colombia.

Ecology

Little known. The holotype was collected from undergrowth, one paratype on Piper sp. and another paratype on Pinus patula Schiede ex Schltdl. & Cham. but these plants are unlikely to be the true hosts because the genus Cyrtonota is associated with Convolvulaceae plants as far as is known (Borowiec and Świętojańska 2014).

Remarks

Cyrtonota abrili is easy to identify using the key presented above. Specimens with red reticulation can be misidentified with small specimens of Cyrtonota pavens (Spaeth), and maculate specimens of the new species at first glance are similar to Cyrtonota deliciosa (Baly) but both relatives belong to the group of species with elongate or acuminate apex of elytra (couplets 2–12 in Borowiec’s (2007a) key) and both are distinctly larger with length 14–19 mm; C. pavens differs also in elytra without erect setae. We treated both reticulate and maculate forms as variablity of a single species because similar polymorphism is observed in other reticulate Andean Cyrtonota and Stolas species i.e. Cyrtonota bergeali Borowiec & Sassi, Stolas cruentata (Erichson) or Stolas pellicula (Spaeth). Other characters such as general body shape, size, punctation, sculpture of surface, vestiture, shape of pronotum, and elytral convexity are the same in both forms.

Discussion

South America with approximately 2/3 of described world cassids is a centre of diversity of tortoise beetles (Borowiec 1999, Borowiec and Świętojańska 2014a). Until recently only three complete checklists of species supplemented by new faunistic materials were published for Neotropical countries: Ecuador (Borowiec 1998a), Trinidad and Tobago (Chaboo and Borowiec 2003) and French Guyana (Borowiec and Moragues 2005), including descriptions of several species new to science (193, 38 and 121 species of tortoise beetles were recorded respectively). The lists and catalogue cited above suggest that western Andean countries (from Colombia to Bolivia) might have several endemic species. Summarized data of distribution of Neotropical tortoise beetles in the web page by Borowiec and Świętojańska (2014b) show that, among the Andean countries, the richest is the fauna of Peru – 323 species, being 81 endemics (25.1%), followed by Bolivia – 254 species, with 42 endemics (16.5%), and Ecuador – 214 species, with 63 endemics (29.4%). The present contribution presents 238 species and 60 endemics (25.2%), but we anticipate many more species since Colombia is much larger than Ecuador yet the two countries have similar numbers of recorded species. Out of the 238 listed species recorded from Colombia 62 (26.1%) still have imprecise location.

Acknowledgments
