Two new species of the genus Chrysolina Motschulsky, 1860, C. jelineki Daccordi & Yang, sp. nov. and C. (Chrysocrosita) josefi Daccordi & Ge, sp. nov., are described from China and Chrysolina (Pezocrosita) kozlovi Lopatin, 1988 is redescribed. Habitus, aedeagi, spermathecae, antennae of male and female and fore tarsi of male of the three species are illustrated, as well as the larva of C. kozlovi. Chrysolina kozlovi is most likely viviparous. The genus Doeberlia Warchałowski, 2007 is treated as a new synonym of the subgenus Timarchomela Achard, 1922. Chrysolina (Timarchomela) doeberli Daccordi & Yang, nom. nov. is proposed as a substitute name for Doeberlia subopaca Warchałowski, 2007.
