Description of teratologies in two species of the genus Phyllophaga (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Melolonthinae)

Abstract

The aim of this work is to describe and illustrate new teratological cases in species of the genus Phyllophaga. A total of 830 specimens collected in 2013 and 2017 in Sierra Sur region of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico were reviewed. Two cases of morphological anomalies were found. The first case is a clypeal malformation in Phyllophaga dasypoda, and the second case is a bifurcated right antenna with double antennal club in Phyllophaga misteca.
