"A summary is given of our current knowledge of the Semiothisini, Glaucinini, and Boarmiini of the peninsula of Baja California, Mexico. The members of these three tribes are among the most commonly collected geometrids of the subfamily Ennominae caught on the peninsula, comprising about half the genera and half the species now known. The Semiothisini and Glaucinini have species that tend to be widely distributed in Baja California, and to have relatively few endemic taxa; the Boarmiini, on the other hand, tend to be more localized in their distribution, with a much higher percentage of endemic species. In all three tribes, the great majority of species have their closest relationships with the fauna of California and the Sonoran Desert of the United States. The following new species are described (all are from Baja California unless otherwise specified): Semiothisa piccoloi, Semiothisa baegerti, Hemimorina angulosa, Glaucina semidura, Pterotaea expallida (Sonora), and Pterotaea spinigera"--P.
