dc.description.abstract "The North American representatives of the tribe Amauropsini belong to a single known genus, Arianops Brendel, of which 31 species are recognized, arranged in seven species groups. Twenty-two species occur in the southeastern Appalachians, but other species are nown from central Pennsylvania (1), central Tennessee (3), north Alabama (4), and northwest Arkansas (1). Twenty-six species are edaphobitic, and five species, known only from caves, are probably troglobitic. The amplyoponica group includes amplyoponica (Brendel and Wickham), Pennsylvania; plectrops Casey, North Carolina; nodosa, new species, North Carolina; laminata, new species, North Carolina; spinicollis, new species, North Carolina; and sandersoni, new species, Arkansas. The alticola group includes two species from North Carolina, alticola, new species, and barbata, new species. The nantahalae group includes nantahalae nantahalae, new species and subspecies, North Carolina; nantahalae joanna, new subspecies, North Carolina; unicoi, new species, North Carolina and Tennessee; and digitata, new species, Tennessee. The neglects group includes neglecta, new species, North Carolina and Georgia; coweeta, new species, North Carolina; parki, North Carolina; truncata, Georgia; and allatoona, Georgia. The cavernensis group includes cavernensis Park, Alabama; jeanneli park, Virginia; stygica Park, Tennessee; pecki, new species, Tennessee; steevesi, new species, Alabama; extera, new species, Alabama; sewanee, new species, Tennessee; and kingi, new species, Alabama. The group is equivalent to subgenus Arispeleops Park, here considered a junior synonym of Arianops. The gigantea group is monobasic, established for gigantea, new species, North Carolina. The henroti group includes six small, flattened species from northeast Georgia and southwest North Carolina: henroti Park, Georgia; thornei, new species, North Carolina; norithe, new species, North Carolina; fovealis, new species, North Carolina; teyahalee, new species, North Carolina; and obliqua, new species, Georgia. A key to species, illustrations, and distribution maps are provided"--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.
