Chloroptenis versicolor (Morawitz, 1860) is recorded from southwest Turkey after about a century since its first record as C. versicolor var. infuscatus Sahlberg 1913. In the recent catalogues C. versicolor was not listed from Turkey, but given as a synonym of Bedelía insignis Lefèvre, 1875. Actually, Chloroptenis versicolor infuscatus is a new synonym of Chloroptenis versicolor, but not a junior synonym of Bedelía insignis.

The genus Taiwanaenidea Kimoto, 1984 is a little-known galerucine genus known only with original description, which lacks illustrations. A number of specimens belonging to this genus are now available for study with effective collection made by Taiwan Chrysomelid Research Team. Two new species, T. cheni Lee and Beenen sp. nov. and T. jungchangi Lee and Beenen sp. nov. are here described. The other two known species, T. collaris Kimoto, 1984 and T. strigosa Kimoto, 1984 are reviewed and illustrations of diagnostic characters are presented. A key to all species of this genus is provided. Copyright © 2015 Magnolia Press.

Calomicrus jungchangi Lee and Beenen, new species, is described, and a similar species, Monolepta rufofulva Chûjô, 1938, is redescribed and a lectotype designated. Male and female reproductive systems are illustrated in detail. Calomicrus jungchangi is easily distinguished from other Taiwanese members of Calomicrus Dillwyn by its characteristic color. It inhabits marine shorelines, probably because of its close association with its host plant, Ipomoea pes-caprae subspecies brasiliensis (L.) van Ooststr.

Ten species of the genus Aulacophora Chevrolat, 1836 are reported for Taiwan. Specimens of A. opacipennis Chûjô, 1962 collected from Southeast Asia were misidentified by Kimoto (1989) and should be identified as A. apicipes Jacoby, 1896. Color photos of habitus and drawings of male and female genitalia from eleven species (including A. apicipes) are presented. The following synonymies are proposed: Aulacophora analis (Weber, 1801) = Galeruca quadraria Olivier, 1808 (syn nov.); A. indica (Gmelin, 1790) = Rhaphidopalpa pubescens Allard, 1888 (syn. nov.); A. apicipes Jacoby, 1896 = A. nigripalpis Chen and Kung, 1959 (syn nov.). Lectotypes are designated for Crioceris abdominalis Fabricius, 1781, C. testacea Fabricius, 1787, Galleruca bicolor Weber, 1801, Galeruca quadraria Olivier, 1808, Aulacophora semiopaca Jacoby, 1886, A.frontalis Baly, 1888, A. lewisii Baly, 1886, A. intermedia Jacoby, 1892, A. semifusca Jacoby, 1892, A. dohrni Jacoby, 1899, A. almora Maulik, 1936, A. apicipes Jacoby, 1896, A. tenuicincta Jacoby, 1897, Rhaphidopalpa pubescens Allard, 1888, R. bengalensis Weise, 1892, R. ceramensis Weise, 1892, R. chinensis Weise, 1892, and Orthaulaca (Ceratia) cattigarensis Weise, 1892.
