Abstract

Limonius seibertae Etzler, new species (Elateridae: Dendrometrinae), is described from Petroleum Co., Montana. The application of Limonius consimilisWalker, 1866 is amended to align with the concepts proposed by M. C. Lane in 1971. Limonius consimilis is the correct name for the North American species traditionally treated as Limonius nitidulusHorn, 1871, which is returned to synonymy, and L. consimilis auct. is corrected to Limonius leconteiLane, 1971. A key to members of the Limonius consimilis species-group is provided.
