Abstract

Tritoma affinis Lacordaire and T. carolinae Casey are found to be conspecific with T. biguttata (Say). Tritoma biguttata and T. affinis represent distinct, well-defined sub-species, while T. carolinae is found to represent hybrid individuals occurring in the intergrade zone and is therefore reduced to synonymy. Relationships among Tritoma humeralis Fabricius, T. atriventris LeConte and T. aulica (Horn) are discussed, and these species compared to T. biguttata.
