We would like to express our sincere gratitude to two fellow phymatologists, Daniel Swanson and David Punzalan, who provided manuscript reviews, suggestions, and invaluable discourse over the past several years that helped shape this taxonomic revision. We greatly appreciate Sarah Frankenberg, Amy Michael, and Eric Gordon for helping to curate and database many of the specimens studied. We also wish to thank the following curators, collections managers, and staff who helped us either obtain and/or take photographs of specimens: Ruth Salas and R.T. Schuh (AMNH), Christopher Grinter and Rachel Diaz-Bastin (CAS), Zachary Falin (KU), Giar-Ann Kung (LACM), Janet Gillette and Larry Stevens (MNA), Mikael Ivie (MTEC), Herbert Zettel and Harald Bruckner (NHMW), Gunvi Lindberg (NRM), Michael Wall (SDNHM), Harry Brailovsky (UNAM), Thomas Henry and Floyd Shockley (USNM), and Frank Merickel (WFBM). Lastly, we would like to thank the many individuals who contributed observations to our iNaturalist project and those whose photographs we included in this revision (James Bailey, Robert Behrstock, Nevin Cullen, Judy Gallagher, Dan Loarie, Richard Stovall, and Paul Tavares).
