dc.description.abstract "The genus Somatolophia is revised for the first time. It is redescribed and divided into two groups, defined on the basis of male and female genitalia. Relationships within the genus are discussed, and a cladogram is presented; simplicia and cuyana form an apomorphic group and are sister species to all the others in the genus. A key is given for the species, based on male genitalia. All species are described, and both the adults and their genitalia are illustrated; distributional data are given for all species. The following species are described as new: desolata (California), montana (California), sinaloa (Sinaloa), incana (Nevada), vatia (Arizona), and petila (Texas); aberration 'obliterata' Warren is placed as a synonym of pallescens McDunnough. The members of this genus occur in the western United States and Mexico, from southern Idaho to the states of Puebla and México"--P. 295. 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.
