Abstract


Codatractus sallyae n. sp., is described from twelve males from the states of Jalisco and Colima in western Mexico. Photographs of adult males and illustrations of male genitalia are presented for C. sallyae and the two most similar species in western Mexico, C. arizonensis (Skinner, 1905), and C. melon (Godman & Salvin, 1893). A discussion on the differentiation of the three species, and notes on the behavior and distribution of Codatractus in Mexico, are presented.
