Anelaphus albofasciatus (Linell)  

( Fig. 1a View Figure 1 )

Elaphidion albofasciatum Linell 1897: 393   .

Anoplium linelli Casey 1924: 246   . Synonymy by Linsley (1936: 465).

Discussion. This distinctive species was described from Los Angeles, California and its synonym, Anoplium linelli Casey   , was described from Tucson, Arizona ( Linsley 1963; Lingafelter et al. 2014, 2020). The biology and description of larvae, pupae, and genitalia was made by Raske (1972). Specimens are rarely collected, perhaps because they are most active in the spring and early summer before the monsoon rains that bring out the majority of species in the region. Specimens have been attracted to lights and found on cacti of the genera Echinocactus Link and Otto   , Opuntia Miller   , and Cylindropuntia Engelmann   ( Cactaceae   ) at night ( Linsley 1963; Swift 2008). Additional localities for Arizona and Texas (new state record) are recorded. Note that Tanner (1934) recorded this species from Utah and Bezark (2018) recorded it from Nevada (also noted in Tavakilian and Chevillotte 2020) but these states are not reflected in Monné and Nearns (2020).
