Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae | 2012/52/sppl2

Two Cassidinae species known from Socotra Island are discussed. Cassida rothschildi Spaeth, 1922 is redescribed, and its last instar larva is described for the first time. Lycium socotranum Wagn. & Vierh. and L. shawii Roem. & Schult. (Solanaceae) are the first host records for this species. Record of Oxylepus deflexicollis (Boheman, 1862) from Socotra is based on misidentified specimen of Oxylepus kossmati Spaeth, 1901.
