dc.description.abstract "The American diplurid genus Euagrus, distributed from Arizona south to Costa Rica, is revised for the first time. Euagrus is defined to include those euagrine diplurids with the following character states: no australotheline crescent; terminal cymbial spines; interlocking spinule patches on male femora I and II; a ventral, proximal, nonspatulate, tibia II mating apophysis with one or more large apical spines; two or three ventral mating keels on metatarsus II; no macrosetae brush on the prolateral surface of male tibia II; and two or more sclerotized stalks with unsclerotized bulbs on each (unsclerotized) spermathecal trunk. The relationships of Euagrus to other euagrine genera are discussed. A cladogram (based on outgroup comparison with the sister genus, Phyxioschema), a key, diagnoses, descriptions, tables of quantitative character values, illustrations, analyses of variation, natural history information, locality records, and distribution maps are provided for the 20 recognized species of Euagrus. Eight of these species are newly described: E. carlos, E. charcus, E. garnicus, E. gertschi, E. gus, E. leones, E. rothi, and E. zacus. Six specific names are newly synonymized: E. ravenus Gertsch and Mulaik, E. apacheus Gertsch and Mulaik, and E. ritaensis Chamberlin and Ivie with E. chisoseus Gertsch; E. empiricus Chamberlin and E. scepticus Chamberlin with E. josephus Chamberlin; and E. pragmaticus Chamberlin with E. rubrigularis Simon"--P. 205. 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.
