Notes. Gillette’s type (USNM#3441) is a female with the forewings missing. It bears the following labels: “Ariz/2102; Gillette; Type /No. 3441/ U.S. N.M.; Typhlocyba   /bipunctata/Gill.; ERYTHRONEURA   / bipunctata/ Gill./ Red form/Det./McAtee; Erythroneura   / apacha/ Bak.” Beamer (1930b) included the species in his key but his illustrations of the male genitalia indicate that he confused this species with N. balli Beamer. Beamer (1934c)   later synonymized the species with E. balli Beamer. DeLong   (in Knull 1944c) compared specimens in the Ohio State Collection with Gillette’s type and indicated that the bright red color pattern was the same; thus Knull (1944c) reinstated apacha   from synonymy and provided the first illustrations of the male genitalia. Because the distinctive bright red coloration of this species is not known to occur in other Neozygina   , Knull’s interpretation of the species appears to be correct. The habitus photo of “ Neozygina apacha   ” provided by Dietrich and Dmitriev (2006: fig. 2M) is a misidentification; the species illustrated is N. antlera   , n. sp, described below.
