dc.description 78 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 26 cm. "Issued December 16, 2010." en
dc.description.abstract The paederine subtribe Procirrina is redescribed, the morphology, phylogenetic relationships, and distribution are discussed, and a key to the eight genera is presented. In the section on morphology, the female genital sclerites are discussed and terms are proposed for the fused sclerites. Neoprocirrus, Oedichirus, Oedodactylus, Palaminus, Paraprocirrus, Procirrus, and Pseudoprocirrus are redescribed and a list of the included species and examined species is included for each. Stylokyrtus, new genus, is described for Oedodactylus errans Sharp, 1876, new combination. Parapalaminus Bierig, 1943, Procirrinus Koch, 1934, and Oedichiranus Reitter, 1906, described as subgenera, are new synonyms of Palaminus, Procirrus, and Oedichirus respectively. The sister group of Procirrina is Pinophilina. The basal genus of the Procirrina is Oedodactylus; Pseudoprocirrus is the sister group to the remainder of the genera, which are clustered in two clades. Palaminus + Oedichirus comprise one of the two clades with Paraprocirrus and Procirrus + Neoprocirrus as its sister. As Stylokyrtus is known by only one specimen, most of the characters important to phylogenetic placement of the genus were unavailable for study and its position within the subtribe is ambiguous. en

  • 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.
