Remarks and Distribution. Previous larval descriptions and illustrations are available for this species ( Smith 1917, Claassen 1931, McCafferty 1981). It can be separated from larvae of other Pteronarcys based on the absence of lateral abdominal projections ( Figs. 18 View Fig , 23 View Fig ), welldeveloped, acutely pointed pronotal projections ( Figs. 20 View Fig , 23 View Fig ), pointed triangular wing pads ( Figs. 21 View Fig , 23 View Fig ), and a pointed, semi-lunate, conical supraantennal process ( Figs. 19 View Fig , 22 View Fig ). This widespread and often abundant species is distributed throughout the Canadian Rockies from Alaska south to Arizona and west to the Coastal Ranges of far western North America ( Jewett 1959, Baumann et al. 1977, Stewart & Oswood 2006).
