Abstract

Lipancylus copelatus Prena, new species, is described from Arizona and Texas (type locality Davis Mountains Resort, TX) and Lipancylus cracens Prena, new species, from Texas and Mexico (type locality Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, TX). They have been confused in the past with Lipancylus parallelus (Champion) (formerly Strongylotes Schönherr), a species present in Mexico and Honduras but not in the United States. Collecting records of L. copelatus and several undescribed species indicate that the larval development takes place in grasses.
