Genus Pareuidella Beamer, 1951
Distribution: USA: Widespread, also northern Neotropics and Caribbean.
Type species: Pareuidella spatulata Beamer, 1951.
Only five species are described in this genus:
Pareuidella avicephaliforma Beamer, 1951 USA: Florida, Georgia, Louisiana.
Pareuidella spatulata Beamer, 1951 - USA: Florida, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Tennessee.
Pareuidella triloba (Metcalf, 1923) - USA: Louisiana, Florida; Bermuda, Bahamas (Cat, San Salvador)
= Euides vanduzeei (Muir and Giffard, 1924); see Kennedy et al. 2012
Pareuidella magnistyla (Crawford, 1914) - USA: Georgia; Puerto Rico, Cuba, Grenada, Mexico, St. Thomas, Turks & Caicos
Pareuidella weedi (Van Duzee, 1897) - USA: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, Texas; Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico
Recorded Hosts: None. Most specimens are recorded from lights.
Economic Importance: Limited.
Species in this genus externally strongly resemble some North American members of Euides, and probably females of these genera can not be separated. Recently, most Nearctic Euides were transferred to Pareuidella. The genus is characherized by being relatively large and uniformly colored; the parameres are complexly branched and the armature of the genital diaphragm is large and avicephalaform (and usually bifid).
Molecular resources: none.
