Abstract
"The North American representatives of the tribe Amauropsini belong to a single known genus, Arianops Brendel, of which 31 species are recognized, arranged in seven species groups. Twenty-two species occur in the southeastern Appalachians, but other species are nown from central Pennsylvania (1), central Tennessee (3), north Alabama (4), and northwest Arkansas (1). Twenty-six species are edaphobitic, and five species, known only from caves, are probably troglobitic. The amplyoponica group includes amplyoponica (Brendel and Wickham), Pennsylvania; plectrops Casey, North Carolina; nodosa, new species, North Carolina; laminata, new species, North Carolina; spinicollis, new species, North Carolina; and sandersoni, new species, Arkansas. The alticola group includes two species from North Carolina, alticola, new species, and barbata, new species. The nantahalae group includes nantahalae nantahalae, new species and subspecies, North Carolina; nantahalae joanna, new subspecies, North Carolina; unicoi, new species, North Carolina and Tennessee; and digitata, new species, Tennessee. The neglects group includes neglecta, new species, North Carolina and Georgia; coweeta, new species, North Carolina; parki, North Carolina; truncata, Georgia; and allatoona, Georgia. The cavernensis group includes cavernensis Park, Alabama; jeanneli park, Virginia; stygica Park, Tennessee; pecki, new species, Tennessee; steevesi, new species, Alabama; extera, new species, Alabama; sewanee, new species, Tennessee; and kingi, new species, Alabama. The group is equivalent to subgenus Arispeleops Park, here considered a junior synonym of Arianops. The gigantea group is monobasic, established for gigantea, new species, North Carolina. The henroti group includes six small, flattened species from northeast Georgia and southwest North Carolina: henroti Park, Georgia; thornei, new species, North Carolina; norithe, new species, North Carolina; fovealis, new species, North Carolina; teyahalee, new species, North Carolina; and obliqua, new species, Georgia. A key to species, illustrations, and distribution maps are provided"--P. 3.
