310, 311,317 (= P. lureolus).

Diagnosis.-A subspecies ofP. borregoensis differentiated by: 13-19 pectinal teeth in

males, 8-12 in females; metasomal segment V with eight to 11 (usually eight) pairs

ventrolateral setae.

Comparisons: P. borregoensis actites has 20-23 pectinal teeth in males, 13-15 in

females; usually seven pairs of ventrolateral setae on metasomal segment V.

Variation.-Pectinal teeth numbered fewer than 19 in 96% of the males, and fewer

than 12 in 92% of the females.

Distribution.-Fig. 27. Extreme southem San Bemardino County, California, southward

(excluding the Coachella Valley) along Colorado River into Yuma County, Arizona,

and northwestern Sonora; Borrego Desert, California, southward into extreme northeastern

Baja California Norte.
