Faxonella creaseriKeith A. Crandall, James W. Fetzner, Jr., and Horton H. Hobbs, Jr.
TypesHolotype, allotype, and morphotype, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. 129215, 129216, 129241 (male I, female, male II); paratypes, Department of Zoology, Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Instituto de Biologia de la Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico City, Mexico, Australian Museum, Sydney, Australia, Joe B. Black, and Jerry G. Walls.
Type LocalityRoadside ditch 3.0 miles (4.8 km) north of Grayson on U.S. Highway 165, Caldwell Parish, Louisiana.
RangeKnown with certainty from only several localities in Caldwell Parish, Louisiana. Tentatively reported here from Arkansas and Missouri.
RemarksSpecimens of the genus from eastern Arkansas and southeastern Missouri may be assignable to F. creaseri or perhaps this taxon represents only a local variant of F. clypeata. (See "Range" and "Remarks" under F. clypeata.) Studies of populations in eastern Arkansas and southern Missouri are badly needed.
