Abstract

Tanystoma diabolica, new species, is described from Baja California, and a key to the five species of Tanystoma is presented. A cladistic analysis of the species permits elucidation of past vicariant events leading to the present-day species. The long-time disjunction of the California fauna by vicariance at the Salinas Valley is supported by the area cladogram derived for this group.
