1 Ital J Zool, (2002) = Natural history of the flea beetle genus Arrhenocoela Foudras (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Alticinae) MAURI ZIO BIONDI GIUSEPPINA DE NARDIS Dipartimento di Scienze Ambientali, Uni ve rsity of L'Aquila, via \Tetoio, Coppito (AQ) (Ira l)') INTRODUCTION The genus Arrhenocoela was described by Foudras (1860), who separated it from the genus CrePidodera Chevrolat, 1836 (sensu Chevrolat, 1836) "par la disposition du corselet qui n'offre pas de dépression transversale, mais en sillon profond et limité de chaque cote par une fossette qui n'atteint pas le bord postérieur... La forme du dernie r segment de l'abdome n du male est très-remarquable ainsi que celle de l'hémicycle et de l'édeage". This tlea beetle genus includes the onl)' species A. lineata CRossi, 1790) occurring mainly in the coastal areas of the Mediterranean Basin. Our stud)' regards many aspects of this genus, such as its systematic position, new ecological and biologica l information and a complete description of the egg and the fjrst-instar larva. MATERIALS AND METHODS ABSTRACT Some taxonomical, biological and ecological notes for Arrbenocoela lineala are reponed, and the systematic position of the genus Arrbenocoela is cliscussed. The complete clescriptions of the egg a nel the first-instar larva are also given. Line elrawings and scanning electron micrographs of particul,lr morphological aspects for both the aclult ancl the larva are also provided. Adult specimens of A. linea/a living on Erica arborea (Ericaceae) were collected in September 1998 in Lido cli Ostia (Rome), O m a.s.l. (Latium, Ital )'} For the rearing, preservation, ancl slide pre paration proceclures usecl in this stucl ), we refer to LeSage (1984) ancl Biondi & cl e Na rclis (998). The materia l was prese rvecl in 70% eth )'1 alcohol. Adults and larvae were clissected using a stereoscop ic microscope. For a delaile cl morphological stucly of the anatomically minute strucrures, the Iarvae were placed in Faure liq uicl, mountecl o n slides, and observed w ith a transmitted-light microscope (Leitz, Ortholux 2: obj. lo, 25 / 1.25) or, after preparation through 'criticai point drier' ancl 'sputtering technique ', analysed witb the scanning electronic microscope (SEM, Philips XL30 CP).

It is associated with Ericaceae; the adults mate fro m September to November; the la rval development is in spring; th e p upation is in the soi\. Females lay their eggs o n p lants of Erica a rborea and E. scoparia, mainly in the bifurcations of young terminai branches or on the leaves. The eggs, always singly laid, are almost completely co vered by vegetai fragments assuming a cryptic aspect. At the beginning, the coloration of the egg is orange yellow then, when it becomes l'ipe, reddish brown. The larva comes out from the egg througb the part of the chorion in contact with m C)c> O O OC)O the plant, using a small hole made with the mandibles C) do in sub-apical positio n. In laboratory, the incubatio n period is very lo ng, about 2.5 mo nths. Very probably this species spends the w inter as an egg. The first-instar larva shows an aposematic lemon yellow coloration, with cephalic capsule, pygid ium and tubercles smooth black, which contrasts strongly w ith the green leaves, the reddish brown branches, and the white C>~z~ (E. arborea) or greenish flowers (E. scoparia) of Erica. From laboratoly observations, it emerged that the larva penetrates into flowers through a small circular hole C ",","m~ made in the corolla and feeds on covering tissue of the ovary and the immature ovules (Fig 41A, B).

The systematic position al the genus Arrhenocoela Some authors have considered Arrhenocoela closety related to NeocrePidodera He ikertinger, 1911 (= Asiorestia Jacobson, 1925 (cf. Ko nsta ntinov & Vandeberg, 1996); = CrePidodera Chevrolat, 1836 sensu Foudras, 1860], mainly for its having an evide nt pronotal transverse antebasal sul cus laterally delimited and the elytrai punctation arranged in regul ar rows. Heikertinger (1950) also includecl Arrhenocoela within his "CrePidodera-Ve rwanclschaft", taxono mical grou p comprehencling some Holarctic and Orientai genera characterised by: antennae l1-segmented; pronotum normally with a transverse antebasal sulcus laterally clelimited; elytral punctation arranged in regular rows; procoxal cavities generally posteriorly closed; tibiae unmodified.

H, left side of the prothorax, dorsal view. More recently, other authors (cf. Doguet, 1994) ha ve consiclerecl Arrbenocoela closely relatecl to the genus Altica Geoffroy, This hypothetical affinity is basecl on the following characteristics: larvae ectophagous in both genera; similar shape of the meclian lobe of aecleagus ancl, especially, of the spermatheca; host plants representecl exclusively (Arrbenocoela) or partially (Altica) by Ericaceae. On the basis of some characters of Galerucine type hinclwing venation (Fig. 18A), such as: the presence of CUla (associateci with CUlb); the presence of the crossvein cula-culb; the Pcu clirectly associatecl with CUlb to form the 1Cuc (cf. Suzuki, 1994), the genus Arrhenocoela can be consiclerecl a taxon of ancient origino However, on the basis of some morphological characters mainly regarcling the particujar shape of the meclian 10 be of aedeagl.ls (Figs 13-16) and abclomen in male (Fig. 8), spermatheca (Fig. 18A, B), ovopositor styli (Fig. 17C, D) ancl spiculum ventraje (Figs 18A, D) in femajes, this Mecliterranean genus shows evolutionary novelties that make more problematic the interpretation of its systematic position within the Western PaJearctic flea beetle fauna. Our comparative morphojogical stucly revealecl that Arrbenocoela occupies a rather isojatecl position, with respect to the other flea beetle genera occurring in the western Palaearctic Region. In our opinion, the affinities of Arrbenocoela must be Jookecl for in some genera from the Orientai Region (see below). With regard to the relationship between An-benocoela ancl Neocrepidodera, these two flea beetje genera show a different metafemoraj spring morphology. In fact, NeocrePidodera has a metafemoraj spring with an evident 'recurve flange', a characteristic not present in Arrbeno rç:;~ '/, tl' I A Y PV ",L:::.J\~~~~. f!',bcd O.l rn m D Fig Arrhenocoela lineata, firstinstar larva.

10 92 M. BIONDI, G. DE NARDIS l! o; In our opinion, Arrhenocoela is more closely related to the Xuthea Baly, 1865, flea beetle genus widespread with lo species mainly in the Orientai Regio n ane! associated with Urticaceae (Se n Gupta & Basu, 1977; Scherer, 1983; Mee!vee!ev, 1997) This affinity is based on the following sharee! morphological characters: procoxal cavities posteriorly closed (Fig. 5); tarsal claws a ppencliculate (Fig. lo); anterior intercoxal process apically clearly widened (Fig. 5); pronotal sulcus laterally delimited (by short longitudinal furrows not reaching the pronotal base in Arrhenocoela; by long longituclinal furrows reaching the pronotal base in Xuthea; pronotal base sinous (Fig. 3); frontal tuberc1es subrriangular, well delimited (Fig. I); maxillary palpi with segment 4 elongate and the segment 3 not enlargee!, about of the same length as segment 2 (Fig. 2); e lytral puncta ti o n arranged in regular rows; metafemoral spring of the 'Btepharida morphologica l-group' (Fu rth & Suzuki, 1998) (Figs 11-12); similar hindwing venation, with evident Cu la and crossve in cula-culb (Fig. 18A). Unfortunate ly, no info rmation abollt the morphology of the larval stages of the genus Xuthea is yet available. REFERENCES B Fig Arrhenocoela lineata, first-instar larva.

Furth, 1985) Moreover, with respect to A rrhenocoela, the genus NeocrePidodera shows: the longitudinal furrows on pronotum long and reaching the pronotal base; the frontal tubercles not distinctly delimited and the hindwing venation more simplified with absence of CU]a- Among the genera near Neo crepidode ra, the nerva ture CU 1a is only sometimes very weakly visible in CrePidodera Chevrolat, 1836 (= Chalcoides Foudras, 1860) Oolivet, 1959; personal data). Some characters present in Arrhenocoela, such as the similar hine!wing venation (Fig. 18A), the transverse antebasal prono tal sulcus late rally delimited (Fig. 3), the procoxal caviries posteriorly closed (Fig. 5) and the elytrai punctation arrangee! in regular rows, are shared with the genus Afrorestia Bechyné, 1959 occurring in the Afrotropical Region. However, also in this case Afrorestia has a different metafemoral spring with an evident 'recurve flange' (pers. data). Concerning the supposed affinity of Arrhenocoela to Altica, we think that many significant differences existing between these two genera both in the adult ane! in the larva (see Table I) allow them to be considerecl pbylogenetically distant and the sharee! ecologica I similarities su cb as convergences, to be evaluated.
