Elias Soares Gomes.
Elias Soares Gomes conducted research on the genus Leucothryreus (Melolonthinae: Geniatini) for his graduation at the State University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UEMS) in Aquidauana, Brazil. His main interest is the biology, ecology, and taxonomy of Rutelinae and Melolonthinae, including larvae and adults. Elias described the immature stages of Geniates borelli Camerano and Anomala testaceipennis Blanchard. His doctoral thesis is at the Federal University of Grande Dourados (UFGD), along with his advisor, Dr. Crébio J. Ávila. He currently works with the biology and ecology of Plectris sp. (Melolonthinae: Macrodactylini) in the midwest region of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.
