A review of Nearctic Selenophorus [Carabidae] north of Mexico with new species, new synonyms, range extensions, and a key
By Messer, P.W. & B.T. Raber
The Coleopterists Bulletin 75 (1): 9-55, 2021
Full title: A review of Nearctic Selenophorus Dejean (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Harpalini) north of Mexico with new species, new synonyms, range extensions, and a key. URL: https://doi.org/10.1649/0010-065X-75.1.9

Contents: Descriptions of eight new species of which one is limited to South America; transfer of Selenophorus discoderoides Schaeffer to genus Discoderus; thirteen new synonyms; clarification of the taxonomic status of Athrostictus punctatulus (Putzeys); identification key to the 15 species groups and 37 species of the adult Selenophorus north of Mexico; descriptions of eight additional Neotropical species; discussion of the six kinds of sexual dimorphism found to be taxonomically useful among the selenophorines; several new state records including six species new to the USA; several new country records in the Neotropics; figures of habitus and male genitalia.

Horn, G.H. 1880. Critical notes on the species of Selenophorus of the United States. Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society, 19(107): 178-183.

Without wishing at the present time to discuss the question of the validity of Selenophorus as a genus distinct from Harpalus, I will only state that no characters lave yet been given which are permanent in all the species. Nevertheless it seems to be at least a well defined group in which there are three series of punctures or foveolae situated on the second, fifth and seventh elytral striae, a character which suggests a similar division of species in Pterostichus.

Species delimitation, classical taxonomy & genome skimming: a review of the ground beetle genus Lionepha (Coleoptera: Carabidae)
By Maddison, DR & JS Sproul
Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, XX, 1 - 46, 2020
ABSTRACT: The western North American genus Lionepha is shown to contain at least 11 species through a combination of eight-gene species delimitation analyses and morphological study. In order to confirm the names of several species, we sequence DNA of primary types of several names, including a LeConte lectotype collected in the 1850s, using next-generation sequencing. We examine chromosomes of eight species, and show that all have 12 pairs of autosomesand an X0/XX sex-chromosome system. The following species are described as new: Lionepha australerasa, L. kavanaughi, L. lindrothi and L. tuulukwa. The name Lionepha erasa is shown to belong to a relatively rare, western species ranging from Oregon through Alaska; the common, widespread species previously known as Lionepha erasa now takes the name L. probata. Bembidion chintimini, B. lindrothellus and B. lummi are synonymized with L. erasa. We provide tools to identify specimens to species, including illustrations, diagnoses and distribution maps.
