SPECIMENS EXAMINED

We have 39 United States records of this rather poorly known species.

DISCUSSION

In addition to the characters cited in the key, N. andrei  HNS  may be separated from all other known United States species, except N. swainsonii  HNS  , by the broad front coxae (in all our other species, they are distinctly longer than broad). As noted above, we believe that N. agilis  HNS  will prove to be the female castes of this species.
