I wrote about the Australian genus Notonomus and its curious pattern of mimicry here, one of the included species from South Australian wine country here and even a post on the preliminary phylogeny here. I am now please to announce that the actual paper has been published.
“A redefinition of the genus Notonomus Chaudoir, 1862 (Coleoptera, Carabidae) based on a molecular phylogenetic analysis and descriptions of new species of the subgenus Leiradira Castelnau 1867”
You can see all the taxa, trees and maps in their full glory in the paper at the Invertebrate Systematics web site.
In this paper I am very pleased to have had a chance to name a fine new species from Mt. Lewis, QLD in recognition of Cheryl Barr‘s years of service to the Essig Museum as our Sr. Museum Scientist/Collection Manager.
