Abstract
The genus Epitrix is revised for America north of Mexico. Eight new species are described, E. californica, E. gentneri, E. capsica, E. floridana, E. rufa, E. ovalis, E. centralis and E. variabilis. The Mexican species E. robusta Jacoby and eastern Palearctic E. pubescens (Koch) are newly reported from the United States. Additional distributional and host plant records are reported and a key is provided for all species. Additional research is needed for a full revision of the fauna North of Mexico because additional species are certain to be found. This thesis is not issued for permanent scientific records and is disclaimed for the purposed of zoological nomenclature in the sense of The Code of Zoological Nomenclature article 8.2 (ICZN, 1999).
