dc.description.abstract "Seven species of Eupithecia (Larentiinae) are found in the states of Mississippi and Louisiana. One of these, occurring throughout the southeastern United States, has been misidentified as herefordaria; it is described as E. matheri, new species (type locality: Vicksburg, Mississippi). The true herefordaria Cassino and Swett is redescribed; it is found only in southeastern Arizona. Two other new species are described: E. vicksburgi (type locality: Vicksburg, Mississippi) and E. broui (type locality: Weyanoke, Louisiana). The other taxa found in these two states are E. peckorurn Heitzman and Enns (reported for the first time from both states and eastern Texas), miserulata Grote, jejunata MeDunnough, and swettii Grossbeck. Diagnostic notes are given for exudata Pearsall, from the Middle Atlantic states, to distinguish it from matheri and jejunata. All species are described; the adults and genitalia are illustrated"--P.
