More than 520 specimens of the chrysomelid genus Lochmaea were available for study as the result of collecting efforts by citizen scientists. Taiwanese species of Lochmaea can be separated into two species groups based on presence or absence of hind wings. The Lochmaea lesagei group (winged) contains L. lesagei Kimoto, 1996 and L. tsoui sp. n. The L. smetanai group (wingless) contains L. smetanai Kimoto, 1996, L. thou sp. n., and L. jungehani sp. n. Members of the L. smetanai group inhabit alpine microhabitats and are the only wingless galerucines in Taiwan that occur in harsh environments, as is the case with most brachelytrous Chrysomelidae.
