    ulacoscelinae beetles have an ancient relationship with cycads (Cycadophyta: Zamiaceae), which contain highly toxic azoxyglycoside (AZG) compounds. How these 'primitive' leaf beetles deal with such host-derived compounds remains largely unknown. Collections were made of adult Aulacoscelis...

    Cycads have the oldest fossil record among extant spermatophytes (seed plants). However, their 'living fossils' status has been recently questioned, based on the results of molecular phylogenetic studies. The group has morphological apomorphies, mainly in vegetative but possibly also in...
