Remarks
"As a result of our revision we reduce the number of valid species in Eastern North America to five, synonymising eight names, and reviving two old names. We will more extensively diagnose and illustrate these species in a forthcoming publication. There are more North American species in this genus, particularly in the West and South, but these are all unnamed species." (1)
