Keith Philips Systematics and Evolution Laboratory, Department of Biology, Western Kentucky University, 1906 College Heights Boulevard, Bowling Green, KY 42101, USA *Corresponding author, current address: Systematics Research Collections, University of Nebraska State Museum, W436 Nebraska Hall Lincoln, NE 68588, USA, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract Th e phylogenetic relationships within the American genus Euphoria Burmeister (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Cetoniinae: Cetoniini) were examined. Fifty-seven adult morphological characters for 40 taxa, including 28 species of Euphoria , representatives of all current and previously recognized genera of Cetoniini from the American continents, and 10 representative genera of Cetoniinae (including ﬁ ve Cetoniini) from the rest of the world were studied. Th e Cetoniini appear monophyletic and supported by two unique synapo- morphies in this study: the ﬂ ange of the elytra-thorax articulation with a medial process and the posterior legs with a carina or row of setae in the internal angle of the femur. Th e genus Euphoria is paraphyletic as E. geminata
