Abstract

Two new species of Lechriops are described from Arizona: L. variegatus n. sp. and L. chiricahuae n. sp. Lechriops oblongulus Champion, previously described from Durango, México, is recorded for the first time from Arizona and is redescribed. These three species and L. californicus (LeConte) are associated with pines and Douglas fir and constitute the californicus group. A revision of Sleeper's (1963) key is given to separate the species of Lechriops in the United States and male genitalia are illustrated for the four species and for L. oculatus (Say). Other undescribed species in the californicus group are known from México to Honduras.
