The American species of the genus Stenostomum.
Proc Am Philos Soc, 79: 213-300

Abstract / Notes

Various spp. of Stenostomum have been widely used for experimental purposes but the results of the work have
been confused because of the uncertainty of specific identification. A review of the literature shows 30
previously descr. from America, 18 of which appear to be of unquestionable validity. Descriptions and plates
(with specific diagnoses and a key) are furnished for these 18 and 4 new spp. Brief notes on the biology of
the genus give a working knowledge of collection and culture methods.
