COCA-ABIA, María Milagro  and  ROBBINS, Paul S. Taxonomy and phylogeny of a new Central American beetle genus: (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) . Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2006, vol.54, n.2, pp.519-529. ISSN 0034-7744.

A new genus and two species of Melolonthinae from Honduras and Nicaragua are described. A phylogenetic analysis, carried out using morphological characters, suggests that Catrachia is a strongly supported monophyletic group. Catrachia is therefore established as a new genus, constituted by two new species, Catrachia mariana and Catrachia nica. Rev. Biol. Trop. 54(1): 000-000. Epub 2006 Mar 31.

Keywords : Catrachia; C. mariana; C. nica; taxonomy; phylogeny.
