New species, distributional notes and systematics of Eutrichites (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Pselaphinae)
Two Mesoamerican species, Mitona sotoi Park and Bryaxis simulatrix Sharp, are redescribed and tranferred to Eutrichites (new combinations). Two new species are described: E. confusum Carlton (Mesoamerica and Bolivia) and E. skelleyi Carlton (Peru). Additional locality data are provided for E. arizonensis Carlton, E. buscki Carlton, E. funiculus (Park), and E. veracruzensis Carlton. A phylogenetic hypothesis of relationships among the nine species included in Eutrichites is proposed and discussed.
