Remarks
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."
