, : Notes on distribution and synonymy of sericid beetles of Taiwan, with descriptions of new species (Coleoptera, Scarabaeoidea: Melolonthidae). Annales Historico Naturales Musei Nationalis Hungarici 94: 53-91

A study of an assemblage (72 taxa) of Sericini from Taiwan (Republic of China) resulted in five new combinations and 12 new synonymies: Eumaladera latitibia (NOMURA, 1974) comb. n., Eumaladera nitididorsis (KOBAYASHI, 1991) comb. n., Microserica fukiensis (FREY, 1972) comb. n. (=Microserica inornata NOMURA, 1974, syn. n.), Cephaloserica parva MOSER, 1908 (=Cephaloserica kojimai MIYAKE, 1991, syn. n.), Pachyserica nantouensis KOBAYASHI et YU, 1993 (=Pachyserica similis KOBAYASHI et YU, 1993, syn. n.), Pachyserica pulvinosa (FREY, 1972) comb. n. (=Serica albosquamosa FREY, 1972, syn. n.; =Pachyserica taiwana NOMURA, 1974, syn. n.), Paramadera kiyoyamai NOMURA, 1974 (=Paramadera babai KOBAYASHI, 1991, syn. n.), Microserica nitidipyga NOMURA, 1974 (=Gastroserica formosana KOBAYASHI, 1991, syn. n.), Trioserica macrophthalma (MOSER, 1918) comb. n. (=Selaserica rufocastanea KOBAYASHI, 1980, syn. n.), Serica formosana MOSER, 1915 (=Maladera curvifemora NOMURA, 1974, syn. n., =Maladera brevipilosa KOBAYASHI, 1985, syn. n.), Paramaladera aserrata KOBAYASHI et NOMURA, 1979 (=Paramaladera cariniprinceps KOBAYASHI et NOMURA, 1979, syn. n.; =Paramaladera wulaiana KOBAYASHI, 1980, syn. n.). New distributional data are given. Six new species are described: Taiwanoserica chunlinlii sp. n., Neosericania habonensis sp. n., Trichomaladera infortunata sp. n., Eumaladera paralatitibia sp. n., Eumaladera puliensis sp. n., Eumaladera fushanica sp. n. Maladera satoi (NIIJIMA et KINOSHITA, 1927) comb. n. is removed from synonymy with Maladera invenusta (MOSER, 1918). Lectotype of Cephaloserica parva MOSER, 1908 is designated. Trioserica lepichaeta MOSER, 1922 is fixed as type species of Trioserica MOSER, 1922.
