There are 260 genera and 2,304 species and subspecies of leaf beetles recorded in China, that belong to three subfamilies under consideration. Among them, 397 species and 36 genera belong to the Chrysomelinae, 1,054 species and 124 genera belong to the Galerucinae, and 835 species and 100 genera belong to the Alticinae. Compared to a previous book on the Chrysomelidae (Coleoptera) of China and Korea, which treated 8 genera and 206 species and subspecies of the subfamily Chrysomelinae, 28 genera and 191 species and subspecies have been added; for the subfamily Galerucinae, 30 genera and 527 species and subspecies have been added (previously 94 genera and 527 species and subspecies were described); for the subfamily Alticinae 37 genera and 543 species and subspecies have been added (previously 63 genera and 310 species and subspecies were described). Thirty one new genera and 996 new species and subspecies were recorded for China. At the same time, many genera and species were revised or synonymized.
