In a recent revision of the genus Timema (Phasmatoptera: Timematodea) (Vickery 1993), an important reference inadvertently was omitted. It contained the following information on T. boharti Tinkham.
Rentz (1963) reported capturing a large series of T. boharti at Pinon Flats, Riverside County, California, during the latter part of April 1962. (The specimens were included in the revision of the genus.) The habitat is “xeric pinyon-juniper with chaparral intrusions”, at approximately 915 m. The series was taken at night. Rentz found mating pairs as well as last-instar numphs, some moulting. He noted that this species had previously been known only in a grey colour phase but there he found both greyish and green specimens with no intergrading. Mating pairs were segregated by colour. As noted in the revision (Vickery 1993), fading subsequent to death produced a brownish colour in all individuals so that detection of original colour is impossible.
