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.
