Revision of the scorpionfly family Holcorpidae (Mecoptera), with
description of a new species from Early Eocene McAbee,
British Columbia, Canada
Abstract. The scorpionfly family Holcorpidae (Mecoptera) has been informally discussed since the
early 1960's, but a detailed treatment in accordance with the provisions of the International Code of
Zoological Nomenclature for naming families was not provided until Willmann did so in 1989; he is
recognized as author of the family. The Holcorpidae concept is revised here based on examination of
its two specimens of Holcorpa maculosa from the Late Eocene of Florissant, Colorado, and a third, new
specimen from the Early Eocene Okanagan Highlands locality at McAbee, British Columbia, Canada.
This new specimen belongs to a second, new species, which is described here, Holcorpa dillhoffi n.
sp.
Résumé. Révision des Mécoptères Holcorpidae, avec la description d'une nouvelle espèce
de l'Eocène inférieur de la Colombie Britannique, Canada. Les Holcorpidae ont fait l'objet de
discussions informelles depuis les années 1960 mais le premier traitement en accord avec les
recommandations en vue la nomination des familles du Code International de Nomenclature est celui
de Willmann (1989), qui est considéré comme l'auteur de cette famille. Le concept d'Holcorpidae est
revu sur la base de l'examen des deux spcimens originaux d'Holcorpa maculosa de l'Eocène supérieur
