genus: EUDICELLA White, 1839
remark: System used below is given in accordance with the latest revision done by Michele De Palma (2009). Michele in his work reduced the number of taxa - 22 species and 50 subspecies were decreased to 14 species and 2 subspecies. Although many taxonomic problems are yet to be resolved - this system is very transparent and allows good identification for most Eudicella populations.
