Abstract:

Ten species are recognized for the area treated, namely <I>L. atnericanus</I> (Leidy), <I>uhlcri</I> (Montandon), <I>annulipes</I> (Herrich-Sch&#228;ffer), <I>medius</I> (Gu&#233;rin), <I>delpontei</I> De Carlo, <I>colossicus</I> (St&#229;l), <I>truxali</I> Menke, <I>angustipes</I> (Mayr), <I>maximus</I> De Carlo, and <I>griseus</I> (Say). These are keyed, a synonymic bibliography is given for each species, and distribution maps are included. The biology of the genus is summarized, and there is a discussion of the general distribution picture with special emphasis on the West Indian fauna, which seems of twofold origin, derived partly from South America and partly from Central America.
