Abstract


Based on my revision of the types of Nearctic aleocharine staphylinids numerous nomenclatural and taxonomic changes are proposed. The following taxa are transferred: Acrimea acerba Casey, 1911a to Tinotus Sharp, 1883; Moluciba grandipennis Casey, 1911a to Oxypoda Mannerheim, 1830; Paradilacra Bernhauer, 1909 to subtribe Tachyusina Thomson, 1859 of tribe Oxypodini Thomson, 1859; Atheta angusticornis Bernhauer, 1907 to Boreophilia Benick, 1973; At. coriaria (Kraatz, 1856) (originally described in Homalota Mannerheim, 1830) to Dalotia Casey, 1910a; Homalota ambigua Erichson, 1839 to Strigota Casey, 1910a; Pseudousipalia microptera Lohse in Lohse et al., 1990 to Emmelostiba Pace, 1982; and Sableta brittoni Casey, 1911a to Thamiaraea Thomson, 1858.
