Abstract

Larvae of species representing 12 of the 13 genera of the superfamily Lebertioidea from North America are described, including members of the genera Bandakiopsis, Utaxatax, Estelloxus, and Testudacarus for the first time. Larvae of species of Sperchon, Sperchonopsis, Teutonia, Bandakia, Lebertia, Oxus, Frontipoda, and Torrenticola are also described to provide complete comparative data for the genera of the superfamily. A key to the families and genera of Lebertioidea, and preliminary diagnoses for the superfamily, families, and genera are provided based upon larval characters. Information on host associations is reviewed for each taxon. Observations on morphology and host associations of these larvae provide the basis for an original, though provisional, outline of phylogeny of Lebertioidea, and a review of the higher classification of the superfamily.

Résumé

L'ouvrage décrit les larves d'espèces représentant 12 des 13 genres de la superfamille Lebertioidea d'Amérique du Nord, notamment certains membres des genres Bandakiopsis, Utaxatax, Estelloxus et Testudacarus pour la première fois. Les larves d'espèces des genres Sperchon, Sperchonopsis, Teutonia, Bandakia, Lebertia, Oxus, Frontipoda et Torrenticola sont également décrites pour compléter les données comparatives sur les genres de la super-famille. L'auteur présente une clef d'identification des familles et des genres de Lebertioidea, et pose certains diagnostics provisoires sur la super-famille, les familles et les genres, basés sur les caractères larvaires. L'information sur les associations des larves avec leurs hôtes est revue pour chaque taxon. Les observations sur la morphologie et les associations de larves avec leurs hôtes forment la base d'un exposé original, quoique provisoire, de la phylogénie de Lebertioidea, et d'une étude de la classification supérieure de la super-famille.
