dc.description.abstract "The characters and history of the subfamily Cholinae together with a comparison with the subfamily Hylobiinae are presented. A taxonomic revision is made of two of the 33 genera of the Cholinae (Homalinotus with 21 species, and Ozopherus, monotypic). These genera occur in Central and South America and the Antilles, where some of the species breed in and damage palms, especially the coconut palm. A strongly sclerotized basal sclerite or copulating armature is found in the aedeagus of all species. Five new species from South America are described: Homalinotus alloides, praelongus, pectinis, kuscheli, and inopinatus. Homalinotus densatus Desbrochers des Loges is transferred to Cholus; H. cyanicollis (Olivier) remains unidentified; H. umbilicatus Desbrochers des Loges from Guadeloupe is reinstated as a valid species. Five species are placed in synonymy. Abebaeus Kirsch is added to the synonymy of Homalinotus. Photographs of all species are given"--P. 3. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
