Nevada Robber Flies


List based on prediction from the April 1997 draft list of E. M. Fisher and J. Wilcox.

The Nevada list falls off the cliff from the CA list just to the west. But what can we expect with 170 of CAs species occurring only in that state. And it is the lowest count in that region, seeming to fall between the California exuberance and the Rocky Mountain species.

As usual, the Efferia genus is split into its Artigas genera with brackets. For this extended Efferia list they are in alphabetical order under each bracketed genera. The whole list is broken into subfamilies but not tribes. Species with description dates in red only occur in CA . Subspecies are not listed. Though there are some species with several subspecies occurring in CA.
