Euchalcis Dufour, 1861


Euchalcis Dufour, 1861 

The limit of this genus is currently under redefinition, especially for distinguishing it from Neochalcis Kieffer  and Hockeria Walker (Delvare 2017)  . The species described in Hockeria  that exhibit an additional outer carina on the metatibia, completely dark setation, and a long postmarginal vein on the fore wing may actually belong to Euchalcis  . Euchalcis  is a small genus mainly distributed in the West Palaearctic region (Noyes 2017).
