Both this and the first Quantico carabid paper(1) make a good companion to Erwin's classic on the carabids of nearby Plummers Island(2). In both Quantico papers, differences and similarities between carabids found at Quantico and Plummers Island are discussed most thoughtfully.

In this paper Hoffman also discusses the difficulty in telling the difference between Diplocheila assimilis and Diplocheila impressicollis, with new illustrations of D. impressicollis aedeagus.
