Discussion:More than a dozen new taxa have been added to this genus since I published a revisional study of it in 1953. To facilitate the placement of these taxa, as well as ones to be described later, in the taxonomic secpience established in my earlier study, I have recast the single key to the species. In the following pages, keys are presented to several series; the term is not intended to have any taxonomic status or phylogenetic significance but is used solely as a mechanical device to make possible future "updating" without extensive republication of keys. Each new taxon has been assigned a number that will serve to align it with its nearest relatives.
