In April 2013, four adults of Acrossidius tasmaniae (Hope, 1847) (Coleoptera Scarabaeidae Aphodiinae) were found during the inspection of the Phytosanitary Service of Tuscany Region in the port of Leghorn, in a container from New Zealand. This is the first interception of this minor pest for cultivated plants in Europe. © 2014, Istituto Sperimentale per la Zoologia Agraria. All rights reserved.

The valid name for the largest European species of Cetoniinae is Pwtaetia speciosissima (Scopoli, 1786), with Pwtaetia aeruginosa (Medvedev, 1964) as a junior synonym. The specimen illustrated by Scopoli in the original description is designated as the lectotype of Scarabaeus speciosissintus Scopoli, 1786. Since the lecto-type is lost, a neotype from Piedmont, Italy, is designated and deposited in the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale Carmagnola, Italy. The name Scarabaeus aeruginosus Drury, 1773 is unavailable since Drury did not describe a new species but misidentified Scarabaeus aeruginosus Linné, 1767. A specimen figured by Gronovius in 1764 and cited by Linné is designated as the lectotype of Scarabaeus aeruginosus Linné, 1767. This species remains dubious, but it can be assigned to the ruteline subtribe Anticheirina.

Te subgenus Orthoscymnus Canepari, 1997 of Scymnus Kugelann, 1794 is herein revised. Seven species of the Orthoscymnus fauna are recognized, of which four species, Scymnus (O.) jilongicus sp. n., S. (O.) paradoxus sp. n., S. (O.) crispatus sp. n. and S. (O.) duomaculatus sp. n., are described as new to science. Scymnus (O.) rhododendri Canepari is recorded from China for the first time. Scymnus (Pullus) robustiba- salis Yu is transferred to the subgenus Orthoscymnus (comb. n.). All species are diagnosed, described and illustrated, and distributions are provided for each species. A key to the species is included. © Xiaosheng Chen et al.
