Type material. Lectotype of Pseudota miscella   (here designated): ♂, “N.[ew] J.[ersey]”, “ miscella Csy.   ”, “TYPE USNM 39147” (red label), “CASEY bequest 1925” ( NMNH).

Lectotype of Dimetrota pectorina   (here designated): ♂, “ Sta. Cruz Mts. Cal.[ifornia]”, “ Dalotia pectorina Csy.   ”, “TYPE USNM 39131” (red label), “CASEY bequest 1925” ( NMNH).  

Lectotype of Dimetrota crucialis   (here designated): ♂, “ Sta. Cruz Mts. Cal.[ifornia]”, “ crucialis Csy.   ”, “TYPE USNM 39132” (red label), “CASEY bequest 1925” ( NMNH).  

Additional material. UNITED STATES: Louisiana: East Baton Rouge Parish   : ♀, Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University campus, 1–15.vi.1998 (A.Tishechkin)   ; ♂, ditto but light trap, 7–17.v.1998 ( SPSU)   ; New York: Manhattan   : ♂, ♀, 6 th Street & Avenue B Garden, 40º43.45'N 73º58.91'W, compost, 3.xii.1998 (A.Berkov & V.R.Coffman); 4 specimens, ditto but 5.ix.1999 (A. Berkov) ( SPSU)   ; UKRAINE: Crimea: 10 specimens, env. of Yalta, Botanicheskoye , in rotting hay, 150 m, 2.ix.1990 (V.I.Gusarov) ( SPSU)   .

Diagnosis. See Benick & Lohse (1974; as Atheta coriaria   ). Aedeagus and spermatheca: Fig. 129 View FIGURES 127–132 in Strand & Vik (1964).

Discussion. The lectotypes of Ps. miscella   , Dim. pectorina   and Dim. crucialis   agree completely with the specimens of Dal. coriaria   from Europe in external characters, including male secondary features and the shape of the aedeagus.

Muona (1979a, 1987) pointed out that Atheta coriaria   is conspecific with Taxicera academica   based on the detailed illustrations of the internal sac of the aedeagus of the latter species by Yosii and Sawada (1976). I accept Muona's interpretation.

Distribution. In North America Dal. coriaria   is known from California, Florida ( Frank 1980), Louisiana, New Jersey and New York. Because Dal. coriaria   is restricted to areas on the West and East coasts, and not known from inland states of the United States, it is probably an introduction from Europe.
