J. B. Heppner


The genus Episimus is revised for North America with 9 known species, 3 of which are described as new from Florida: Episimus lagunculariae, n. sp.; Episimus kimballi, n. sp.; and Episimus burserae, n. sp. All Nearctic and subtropical Episimus species occur in Florida. Other than for 3 species widespread in eastern North America, most of the North American Episimus are restricted to southern Florida, with 3 species known to also occur in the West Indies. Episimus guiana (Busck), Episimus nesiotes Walsingham, and Episimus transferranus (Walker) are newly recorded for Florida and the United States.
