Cassida Linnaeus 1758 [genus]

Borowiec and Sekerka (2007) treated all the palaearctic subgenera of genus Cassida as "provisional" synonyms because of the current lack of knowledge of the phylogenetic relationships of this huge genus, comprising more than 400 species worldwide (see also Borowiec, 2007). In this catalog we maintain the old division into traditional subgenera, pending a comprehensive taxonomic review of the genus.
