dc.description.abstractThe monotypic South American scarab genus Acrobolbia Ohaus, 1912 is reviewed and transferred to the tribe Cyclocephalini (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Dynastinae). It was formerly placed in the subtribe Acrobolbiina (Rutelinae: Rutelini) or subtribe Oryctomorphina (Dynastinae: Pentodontini), depending on the author. We discuss characters that warrant transfer, redescribe the genus (including the first description of a female), and briefly discuss natural history of A, macrophylla Ohaus, 1912. We include a key to males and females of all 14 genera of Cyclocephalini.en_US
