Remarks.

In his original descriptions, Huckett (1966) relied on subtle differences in variable characters to separate D. rivalis   from D. amnicola   . Following the examination of type material from these two taxa we concluded that all features listed in the original descriptions are variable (including the pollinosity of the female parafacial, a feature we found to vary from entirely dusted to mostly glossy in the type series of D. amnicola   ), and that D. rivalis   is a synonym of D. amnicola   .

Furthermore, Huckett (1966, 1975) uses the strength of av bristles on the apical 1/2 of F2 to separate males D. santamonicae   (strong and long) from D. amnicola   (weak) and junior synonym D. rivalis   (weak but slightly stronger). While the male holotypes of these taxa do exhibit a difference in the strength of the F2 av, we have found this feature to be variable. The configuration of the F2 pv row and the pollinosity of the thorax and abdomen appear to be more stable characters to separate the males of D. santamonicae   from those of D. amnicola   (and the similar D. aldrichi   ) (see couplet 21 of male key).
