In order to investigate the affinities of the hitherto considered Neotropical Cleomenini genera, a detailed morphological comparative study was carried out based on representatives of their type species and other congeneric species. The results, when compared with representatives of Cleomenes Thomson and other non Neotropical Cleomenini genera together with representatives of Rhopalophorini Blanchard and Rhinotragini Thomson, show that: 1) Listroptera Audinet-Serville, 1834, Dihammaphora… Expand

A Revision of the Genus Callimoxys Kraatz (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in America North of Mexico and Review of World Species
A morphometric study was conducted using 67 characters from adults of the North American species of Callimoxys Kraatz, 1863 to determine which characters aid in the diagnosis of taxa, and their relative amounts of resolving power using canonical variates analysis. Expand
Brachylophora, a new brachypterous genus of Rhopalophorini (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)
The genus is transferred from Rhinotragini to Rhopalophorini based on the following characters: eyes well separated in both sexes, frons between eyes depressed and lacking frontal suture; and, more generally, structural features of hind legs, and surface ornamentation. Expand
