dc.description.abstract "The seven Nearctic and three Palaearctic species of Callilepis are diagnosed, described, and assigned to species groups. An attempt is made to reconstruct their phylogeny by a cladistic analysis of genitalic charcters. Three new species (chisos, mumai, and gertschi) are described from the southwestern United States. Six specific names are newly synonymized: the American munda Chamberlin, femoralis Banks, and altitudonis Chamberlin with imbecilla (Keyserling), pluto Banks, and eremella Chamberlin, respectively; the European wiehlei Bristowe with concolor Simon; and the Asian flavitarsis (Simon) and bipunctata Yaginuma, both with schuszteri (Herman). The female of gosoga Chamberlin and Gertsch is described for the first time. Callilepis grisea Banks is transferred to Eilicina"--P. [1]. en_US
