Distributional data for the Pleocoma hoppingi--Pleocoma rubiginosa species complex are recorded, and clinal character tendencies are discussed. Structural and meristic characters utilized in species differentiation are analyzed, and the antennomeres for the known population samples of both species are characterized. P. r. transsierrae is described as new, and a description is presented for the female of P. r. rubiginosa. Comparisons are given between females of P. hoppingi and P. rubiginosa, and the problems inherent in Pleocoma female differentiation are discussed.
