SYNONYMY


Taxonomic Comments.   This species is closely related to virilis Blackman and may not be distinct.


  • Pityophthorus scriptor Blackman 1921. Miss. Agr. Exp. Stat. Tech. Bull. 10: 7

DISTRIBUTION.

Numbers in parentheses after each geographic unit are the number of distinct collection events in the database for that unit. For exotic species generally only countries are listed for localities outside the New World. For further information on published sources of distribution, check the REFERENCES section.


Distribution Comments.   This is the 'eastern' species and virilis Blackman is its 'western' counterpart. As treated by Bright (1981) these species are largely separated with an area of overlap in central Texas. As treated by Wood (1982) there is broader overlap in the midwest.

    United States (23): no state / prov. data (1), Delaware (1), Georgia (1), Indiana (2), Mississippi (3), North Carolina (1), Oklahoma (1), Tennessee (1), Texas (12);


HOSTS

Maps automatically open at the center of the plotted points and the scale is set to encompass all map points. Maps can be resized (scale bar at upper left) and the center moved (place cursor over map and drag) to see other parts of the distribution of the species. Clicking on a map marker will pull up collection event data and a literature citation if present. If any errors are found, please refer to the "series code" which is a unique identifier for a database record in any communications). Coordinates have not been entered for all collection records. Localities outside the New World are not plotted, even though they are listed in the distribution summary and in the table of records.
