Abstract

Ammophila hevans Menke, new species, is described from Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. Taxonomic notes are provided for the following species of Ammophila: rufipes Guérin-Méneville, 1831; laeviceps Smith, 1873; ruficollis Reed, 1894; and ruficosta Spinola, 1851. New synonyms are: Ammophila variolosa Giner Marí, 1994 = rufipes Guérin-Méneville 1831; chilensis Reed, 1894 = laeviceps Smith, 1873. A lectotype is established for Ammophila chilensis Reed from Chile. The history of the acquisition of the Edwyn C. Reed collection in 1951 by the California Academy of Sciences is outlined.
