Type material. Holotype of Tinotus trisectus   : UNITED STATES: Idaho: Kootenai Co.: ♀, Coeur d'Alene, vi (H.F.Wickham) ( NMNH).  

Lectotype of Acrimea fimbriata   (here designated): ♂, “The Dalles, Oreg.[on (Wickham)]”, “ fimbriata Csy.   ”, “TYPE USNM 39738” (red label), “CASEY bequest 1925” ( NMNH).

Lectotype (♀; designated by Hanley (2002)) and paralectotype (♂) of Tinotus pallidus   : UNITED STATES: Iowa: Linn Co.: Cedar Rapids ( NMNH).  

Lectotype of Tinotus brunneus   (designated by Hanley (2002)): UNITED STATES: Pennsylvania: ♂, near Philadelphia ( NMNH).  

Holotype of Tinotus binarius   : UNITED STATES: Arizona: Pima Co.: ♀, Tucson ( NMNH).  

Additional material. UNITED STATES: California: Kern Co.: ♂, 12 mi. S Bakersfield, 20.v.1958 (E.I.Schlinger) ( CNCI)   ; Tennessee: Lake Co.: ♂, Reelfoot Lk., 7 km NE Tiptonville, at black light, 8.v.1986 (J.M.Campbell) ( CNCI)   .

Diagnosis. See Klimaszewski & Pelletier (2002).

Discussion. The lectotype of Acrimea fimbriata   is similar to the holotype of Ti. trisectus   in external characters. The shape of the aedeagus, including the structure of the internal sac, is identical in the lectotype of Acri. fimbriata   and in examined males of Ti. trisectus   .

Klimaszewski et al. (2002) placed Ti. pallidus   in synonymy with Ti. caviceps   . Unfortunately, the male paralectotype of Ti. pallidus   lacks the head and pronotum which does not allow the comparison of these parts of the body with the males of Ti. caviceps   which have strong medial impressions of the head disk and pronotum. However, both types of Ti. pallidus   are more glossy than the types of Ti. caviceps   and resemble Ti. trisectus   in that respect. The aedeagus (including the structures of the internal sac) of the paralectotype of Ti. pallidus   is similar to the aedeagus of Ti. trisectus   , and not Ti. caviceps   . This fact is clear when Figures 21 View FIGURES 19–22 , 23 View FIGURES 23–30 and 17–20 View FIGURES 15–18 View FIGURES 19–22 in Klimaszewski & Pelletier (2002) are compared. Therefore, Ti. pallidus   is removed from synonymy with Ti. caviceps   and placed in synonymy with Ti. trisectus Casey, 1906   .

Hanley (2002) designated the lectotype of Ti. trisectus   . However, when Casey (1906) described Ti. trisectus   he indicated that he had “the single type” of this species. Therefore this type is the holotype, and the lectotype designation by Hanley (2002) is redundant. Hanley (2002) also designated the lectotype of Ti. binarius   . When Casey (1911a) described Ti. binarius   he indicated that he had “only one example” of this species. Therefore this type is the holotype, and the lectotype designation by Hanley (2002) is redundant.

Distribution. Ti. trisectus   is widespread in the United States. It is known from Oregon, California, Arizona, Idaho, Iowa, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
