A Taxonomic Conspectus of the Blondeliini of North and Central America and the West Indies
By D. M. Wood
Memoirs of the Entomological Society of Canada, 1985
A generic revision of the Blondeliini of North and Central America with keys and diagnoses of genera.

https://doi.org/10.4039/entm117132fv

Abstract:

The species of the tribe Blondeliini of North and Central America and the West Indies (including Trinidad) are grouped into 55 genera. Included is an illustrated key to the genera, a diagnosis of each genus, a list of all generic synonyms, and a taxonomic catalogue of all species recorded from these regions, including their New World synonyms. Type status, type locality, and depository of primary type material is given for each nominal species. One hundred and seventy-seven new generic-level synonyms, 67 new species-level synonyms, and 321 new combinations are proposed. Didyma fuliginipennis Wulp, belonging to the tribe Eryciini, was assigned to the genus Ametadoria (see under lectotype designation of Didyma volucris Wulp). Three new species are described: Ligeria latigena n. sp., from Yukon; Policheta crassisetosa n. sp., from Oregon; and Steleoneura novemmaculata n. sp., from Yukon, Banks Island, and Victoria Island. Lectotypes are designated for 93 nominal species.

North American Species of Cuterebra, the Rabbit and Rodent Bot Flies (Diptera: Cuterebridae)
By Curtis W. Sabrosky
Entomological Society of America, College Park Maryland, 1986
This is the most current key to the 40 species of Cuterebra bot flies in North America. The key is meant for having the specimen in hand, and not all species are pictured, so takes some effort to use the key. But nice range maps and packed with information about each species of bot. Excellent bibliography for more detailed information, if desired. This is the best book on bots out there, but those not familar with terminology may struggle with it.
