Xystrologa n. sp. Davis
There is one named Xystrologa species in America north of Mexico.
At least 5 species awaiting description.
Specimen identified by DNA analysis (BOLD). (1)
Dr. Davis recently corresponded with Robert Zimlich (10/23/2014), "I now have nearly all of the illustrations done for the N. American paper (~ 6 new species) but I have been busy trying to complete several other papers. As soon as these are done in about a year, I will begin to work on the Xystrologa again as well as a paper on the genus Dryadaula."
