By Woodrow W. Middlekauff
Bulletin of the California Insect Survey, Volume 11, University of California Press, 1969
Full Text

Has keys and brief discussions for the 12 cephid species known from North America in 1969, with emphasis on California species.

Note that what Middlekauff treated as Cephus clavatus is currently recognized as Calameuta clavata...a genus Middlekauff did not include in his treatment. Another nearctic species of Calameuta was published in 2005, and a key to both species appears in Smith & Schiff(1).
