, 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.
