GoogleMaps   Notes   GoogleMaps : This   GoogleMaps species was described from 1 mi W of Bayshore and 4 mi N of Shelton, Mason Co.   GoogleMaps , Washington   GoogleMaps , and heretofore was known only from the type locality. New   GoogleMaps collecting revealed a much wider distribution, detailed above and in the supplemental KML map, and show this species to be the most widely distributed and most commonly collected conotylid in western Washington. All   GoogleMaps these populations are linked by identical anterior gonopods ( Fig. 192 View FIGS ), but the posterior gonopod coxites (i.e., Fig. 193 View FIGS ) are so complicated that it is difficult to view them from exactly the same angle and make comparisons. Thus   GoogleMaps it is not possible really to be sure that all collections belong to the same species. This can be worked out later with genetic data.
