Abstract

A new subspecies of Cicindela nevadica LeConte, Cicindela nevadica makosika Spomer, is described from the South Dakota Badlands. Geographically, the population occurs at the periphery of the range of C. nevadica knausii Leng. However, this new population is geographically isolated from the nearest C. n. knausii populations, which occur ca. 100 air miles N and over 100 air miles south. Phenotypically, C. n. makosika appears most similar to C. n. tubensis Cazier from NE Arizona. A possible threat to this population is habitat destruction by cattle.
