IANNUZZI, Luciana e MARINONI, Renato C.. Revision of the neotropical genus Coelosis Hope (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae, Dynastinae). Rev. Bras. Zool. [online]. 1995, vol.12, n.1, pp. 93-121. ISSN 0101-8175. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-81751995000100012.
The genus Coelosis with two subgenera, Coelosis s.str. [type species: Scarabaeus sylvanus Fabricius, 1775] and Eucoelosis subgen.n. [type species: Scarabaeus biloba Linnaeus, 1767], is revised and redescribed. Other four species: C. (C.) inermis Sternberg, 1908, C. (C.) bourgini (Dechambre, 1976), C. (Eucoelosis) hippocrates Blanchard, 1846, and C. (E.) bicornis (Leske, 1779) were recognized and redescribed. Coelosis (E.) denticornis Arrow, 1937 was not studied, and the original description is transcribed herein. New characters considered relevant for comparative studies and for species identification are presented. The subgenus Millotsis Bourgin, 1944 [type species: Coelosis inermis Sternberg, 1908] is considered a junior subjective synonym of Coelosis s.str.. A phenetic analysis is presented.
