Diagnosis. Oxypoda amica   belongs to a group of Nearctic species with the copulatory piece of the internal sac extended in a long flagellum. Externally the species of this group are very similar, and O. amica   can be recognized among them only by the distinct shape of the aedeagus ( Figs. 15–17 View FIGURES 15–18 ) and spermatheca ( Fig. 18 View FIGURES 15–18 ).

Discussion. The types of O. amica   , Anc. sollemnis   , O. vetula   , O. neptis   and O. schaefferi   are similar in external characters and in the shape of the aedeagus (including the sclerites of the internal sac) and spermatheca.

Distribution. Oxypoda amica   is widespread in the eastern United States. It is known from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, North Carolina and Louisiana.
