Echthroplexiella Mercet 1921 


Remarks. Until recently, this genus was known only from the Palearctic region, but Trjapitzin (2006) described a new species from Mexico, and reported another undescribed species from Pt. Reyes, Marin County ( EMEC) (the collecting labels read “North Beach Turnoff, ungrazed plot”, not “North Beach Tarnhoff, ungra-zed plot” as reported by Trjapitzin). Additional specimens of this species were collected in Lassen, Marin, Nevada, Santa Barbara ( RLZC) and San Bernardino ( UCRC) counties. Specimens which appear to represent a second species were collected in Inyo County ( UCRC).
