The Chrysomelini are a cosmopolitan group of leaf beetles including the majority of species in the subfamily Chrysomelinae, characterised by genitalia with a V-shaped tegmen. Subgroups of the Chrysomelini include the primarily Australasian Paropsina which generally have toothed claws and the epipleura completely obscured in lateral view by the edge of the elytral dorsal surface. Cadiz hardyi is a species found in Californian sand dunes that lacks the expanded tarsal pads of other chrysomelines (Riley et al. 2002).
