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
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. DOI: 10.1093/zoolinnean/z1z167
