Abstract

Litheleodes Blaisdell, a subgenus of Eleodes Eschscholtz, is reviewed with diagnoses, distributions, and nomenclatural notes for the nine included species. A type species, Blaps extricata Say, is herein designated, and the subgeneric definition is updated to differentiate it from related subgenera. The species, distributed over the western USA and adjacent parts of Canada and Mexico, are keyed and illustrated.
