Polyamia (Copolyamia) Sinada & Blocker 

Diagnosis. Members of this subgenus may usually be recognized by the presence of supernumerary crossveins only in the clavus of the forewing, the relatively short, stout aedeagus, and the female seventh abdominal sternite, which has a broad posterior median lobe overlapping smaller paired lateral lobes.

Remarks. This subgenus is relatively well defined and homogeneous morphologically. Most of the included species are restricted to the temperate and subtropical warm season grasslands of the USA and Mexico. To facilitate comparison with subgenus Polyamia (Polyamia) DeLong  and the new species of that subgenus described below, color illustrations are provided for two common North American species of Polyamia  ( Copolyamia  ) ( Figs 1–4View FIGURE 1View FIGURE 2View FIGURE 3View FIGURE 4).
