A neglected trichiine beetle from Costa Rica (Coleoptera: Cetoniidae)
Zoologische Mededelingen , Volume 82 - Issue 13 p. 103- 108
Giesbertiolus linnaei spec. nov. is described after a female from Costa Rica, in order to prevent this unusual beetle, collected as long ago as 1895, from falling into oblivion. It is compared with the two known Giesbertiolus species and with other Mesoamerican Trichiini. The ignorance as to the precise relationships of the three species included is briefly discussed.
