dc.description.abstract "Zalobius and Asemobius are redescribed, Nanobius is newly described and their phylogeny and taxonomic position are discussed. One new species, nancyae, is descibed in Zalobius, and serricollis, formerly in Zalobius, is placed in the new genus Nanobius. The four species of the three genera are keyed, described, and illustrated. The current subfamilial assignement of the genera is concluded to be unsatisfactory but the genera share no detected derived characters with other subfamilies that permit reassignment. Cladistic analysis indicates that the two species of Zalobius form the sister group of Asemobius caelatus, that Nanobius serricollis is the sister species of a group containing all three, and that the four species share at least six apomorphic character states. Alternative phylogenetic schemes are discussed. The four species live in the temperate, montane areas of the western United States and Canada"--p. 49. en_US

Files in this item

This item appears in the following Collection(s)

  • 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.
