Revision of the Nearctic species of the Pompilid genus Pepsis (Hymenoptera, Pompilidae)
By Paul D. Hurd
American Museum of Natural History, New York, 1952
Full Text.

This 1952 revision of the nearctic species of the Pompilid genus Pepsis, based on the Ph.D. thesis of Paul David Hurd, was published as Vol. 98. Article 4 of the Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History.

I saw it referenced on the BugGuide info page for Pepsis, and when I found it was currently available as a PDF, I figured it would be useful to provide a book entry here with a link for downloading.

A comprehensive treatment of the biology, systematics, and diversity of Hymenoptera in Costa Rica. Keys to superfamilies, families, subfamilies and in many cases, genera are included.
