This is the 513 page Ph.D. dissertation on new world members of the subfamily Mantispinae (Neuroptera: Mantispidae), completed by K. M. Hoffman at Clemson University in 1992. It is an excellent and influential work...exceptionally well-researched, written, and organized, and extremely detailed and thorough. A fantastic resource for those interested in the in-depth systematics of this group. It is available from ProQuest/UMI Dissertations Publishing at this link. (Price of PDF was $37, as of 8/11/13 )
