Genus Amydria
Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Amydria (Clemens, 1859)
Twelve Amydria species occur in America north of Mexico. The great majority of Nearctic species in this genus are undescribed. Only three described species are known from the northeast, with an additional undescribed species likely. Until the group is revised, all identifications, with few exceptions, should be considered tentative at best.
