Great Basin Naturalist


The generic concept of Paralidia Nielson, type-species, Coelidia plaumanni Linnavuori, is reelucidated after five additional new species were found in South America. These are described and illustrated. Four species, all from Brazil, include spinata, retrorsa, denticulata, and bispinosa. One species, singularis, is from Ecuador. A key to males of the six known species is also presented.
