Note the figures appear to be mislabeled. I believe the labels for Figures 2 & 3 are switched (i.e. Figure 2 should be puncticollis rather than margaretae, and Figure 3 should be margaretae rather than puncticollis). This can be confirmed from Schultz's thesis as well as Ciegler's (1) treatment of the genus.

Abstract

The genus Spintherophyta Dejean, 1837 is revised for North America north of Mexico. A key to the 4 included species is presented.

S. exigua, n. sp., is described from southwestern Texas.
