Abstract

The genus Tanystoma Motschulsky is revised, with a key to species, synonymies, and descriptions provided for T. maculicolle (Dejean), new combination, T. cuyama, new species, T. striata (Dejean), and T. sulcata (Dejean). Lectotypes are designated for the Dejean species. The cladistic relationships of Tanystoma are analyzed, and speciation events within the clade are attributed to Pleistocene oscillations of California grassland-chaparral. The vicariance pattern hypothesized for Tanystoma is compared to that exhibited by other groups of plants and animals and is found to represent a general pattern. This pattern entails sequential south to north vicariant events; the first isolating the Southern Coastal and Peninsular mountain ranges in California from coastal areas north of Monterey; the second event separating coastal mountain habitats in the Northern Coastal range of California from those in Oregon.
