SYNOPSIS OF THE GENUS HETERELMIS SHARP IN THE UNITED STATES, WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES FROM ARIZONA (COLEOPTERA, DRYOPOIDEA, ELMIDAE) 1 Harley P. Brown 2 INTRODUCTION In 1870, Horn described Elmis glaber, based upon a single speci- men from the San Pedro River of Arizona. LeConte (1874) described Elmis vulneratus from one specimen taken by Belfrage in Texas. In 1882, Sharp created the Genus Heterelmis for three new species he was describing from Guatemala, H. obscurus, H. obesus, and H. sim- plex. In 1887, Sharp added a new species from Mexico, H. longulus. Grouvelle described H. dubia from Brazil (1888) and H. neglecta from Bolivia (1896), utilizing the feminine ending to agree with the gender of the generic name. Hinton described H. limnoides and H. pubipes from Brazil ( 1936 ) and, in 1940, redescribed the genus and Sharp's Mexican species, along with two new species (H. acicula and H. tarsalis) and a new subspecies (H. obesa plana) from Mexico. In his 1940 paper, Hinton listed a specimen of H. obscura from Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. Brown (1956) and Sanderson and Brown (1959) reported Heterelmis sp. from Johnston County, Oklahoma on the basis of a single specimen. Burke (1963) stated that Heterelmis sp. was ". . . fairly common from April through October in streams in the Accepted for publication: February 15, 1972 [3.0179]. 2 Department of Zoology (and Stovall Museum of Science and History), Uni- versity of Oklahoma, 730 Van Vleet Oval, Norman, OK 73069, U.S.A.
