Mark record


Pentanota meuseli Bernhauer was erroneously reported from Alaska, based on a mis-identification of a specimen of Neothetalia sp. near N. columbiana Klimaszewski, and is here removed from the list of genera and species occurring in North America. A lectotype and a paralectotype are designated for the species from the only two existing original Bernhauer specimens. External and genital illustrations are provided to avoid identification problems in the future.
