  • Gregory R. Curler (a1) and John K. Moulton (a1)
Abstract

Larvae, pupae, and adult males and females of Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) americanus (Kincaid), as well as adult males and females of Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) microlimnetessp. nov. were collected during various biodiversity surveys in the southeastern United States. Clytocerus (B.) americanus is redescribed, C. (B.) microlimnetes is described, and the natural history and relationships of Nearctic species of Clytocerus are discussed.
