Abstract:

The New World species of the genus Paralimna Loew are revised. Fifteen new species are described and four new synonyms are proposed (Paralimna cilifera Hendel = Paralimna sana Cresson, Paralimna sticta Hendel = Paralimna taurus Cresson, and Paralimna bistriata Hendel = Paralimna molossus Schiner, P. multipunctata Williston = Paralimna thomae (Wiedemann)). A key to the 34 known, New World species of the subgenera Paralimna is provided, as is a key to the three New World species of the subgenus Phaiosterna Cresson. Diagnoses, detailed distributional data for the species of the genus, notes on the biology, and illustrations (photographs and drawings) are provided to assist species identification.--Provided by publisher
