Japyx Haliday, 1864


Japyx Haliday, 1864 

The description of a “ Japyx  sp.” specimen from “California,” figured by Kellogg (1908), is too vague to be recognizable, according to Reddell (1983). A specimen labeled Japyx  sp. was collected in Crystal Springs Park, San Mateo, 27 Oct. 21, W. Pierce ( LACMAbout LACM). The “ Japyx  sp. nov. ” from Ventura County described by Cook (1898) is probably a mistaken locale, according to Reddell (1983). Japyx  is currently understood to be limited to Europe and northern Africa ( Reddell 1983).
