PROCEDURAL NOTES

Some pertinent material has been entered from Bassler (1915), but not all. For genera in which all species with type-Cincinnatian representatives or connections have been entered, this is noted under "Sources" for the genus under consideration.

The pertinent material in Davis (1992) has been entered.

Some pertinent material in Dalvé (1948) has been entered, but only for the Fulton.

The generic names and the trivial names in the following have not been entered into the overall alphabetical listings of generic and specific names.

ABOUT THIS WEB-PAGE -- Caveat lector !

This web-page was constructed using MS-FrontPage and its version of html. The results have been previewed by way of MS Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, things that look fine when viewed with Internet Explorer sometimes look rather peculiar when viewed with Netscape. For example, there can be unexpected and unpredictable changes in the size, shape, style of type, or some combination of these. Moreover, sometimes different versions of Internet Explorer do not present the same web‑page in the same way; for example, hyphens in one version can mutate into empty rectangles in another. Alas!
