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.

An annotated checklist of ground beetles (Carabidae) in the state of Sonora, Mexico with new species & collection localities
By Spheley, D & T.R. Van Devender
Dugesiana 29(1): 41-137, 2021
Complete title: An annotated checklist of ground beetles (Insecta: Coleoptera: Carabidae) occurring in the state of Sonora, Mexico with descriptions of new species and notes about some collection localities.

ABSTRACT
An annotated checklist of ground beetles in the family Carabidae from the state of Sonora in Mexico is presented with notes including number of specimens examined, municipios, habitat, vegetation, elevation, and collection dates. The checklist includes 388 taxa, of which 270 are described taxa (included are 19 subspecies and 1 hybrid) and 118 are unnamed morphospecies, in 92 genera representing 35 tribes. Dot maps display where specimens were collected. Three new species are described, with corrected keys and images: Calathus mcclevei, new species (type locality: Mexico, Sonora, Municipality of Yécora, 10 km south of Yécora, ca. 28.278° N 108.926° W); Calathus tigrinus, new species (type locality: Mexico, Sonora, Municipality of Nacozari de García, Rancho El Tigre, 28.3 km (by air) WNW Bavispe, Sierra El Tigre, 30.58988° N 109.20811° W); and Amblygnathus balli, new species (type locality: Mexico, Sonora, Municipality of Fronteras, Rancho Capulín, 23.5 km (by air) WSW Fronteras, Sierra Buenos Aires, 30.76167° N 109.82361° W).

The article's main impact on BugGuide is that North American species previously belonging to Zuphium would be moved to genus Zuphioides. The latter Latinized name is treated as neuter and so the previous epithets under Zuphium remain unaffected.
