Most Galerucinae with elongated basi-metatarsus are traditionally assigned to the “Monoleptites”. As recent studies reveal, many species belong to genera outside this group and several of them show a close relationship to the type species of Galerudolphia Hincks, 1949, a substitution of the younger homonym Rudolphia Jacoby, 1899a, and need to be transferred to this group. A total of 6593 specimens from continental Africa and Arabia were examined. The genus now contains 15 species: Galerudolphia pallida (Jacoby, 1899a); Galerudolphia nigrosuturalis (Jacoby, 1897) comb. n., = Luperus nigrosuturalis Jacoby, 1897, = Luperus epipleuralis Jacoby, 1907, syn. n., = Rudolphia marginata Jacoby, 1907, syn. n., = Luperus (Calomicrus) atricornis Weise, 1907, syn. n. = Luperodes obscuricornis Weise, 1909, syn. n., = Rudolphia frontalis Laboissière, 1919, syn. n., = Luperus epipleuralis var. keniaensis Laboissière, 1919, syn. n., = Luperodes debilis Laboissière, 1940, syn. n. = Monolepta nigriventris Bryant, 1953 syn. n.; Galerudolphia capensis (Baly, 1889) comb. n., = Iphidea capensis Baly, 1889; Galerudolphia tenuicornis (Jacoby, 1899b), comb. n., = Candezea tenuicornis Jacoby, 1899b; Galerudolphia wittei (Bryant, 1958), comb. n., = Luperus wittei Bryant, 1958; Galerudolphia arabica (Medvedev, 1996), comb. n., = Monolepta arabica Medvedev, 1996. Furthermore, the newly described species: Galerudolphia viridis sp. n., G. gertiae sp. n., G. angolae sp. n., G. nigroapicalis sp. n., G. martini sp. n., G. stephani sp. n., G. namibiae sp. n., G. ruwenzorica sp. n., and G. peterhelmuti sp. n.. Rudolphia minor Weise, 1902 is not congeneric and need to be transferred to another group. The genus and all species are redescribed or described including figures of external and genitalic characters. Distribution maps and an identification key for all species are provided.
