The present paper represents the results of a detailed study of the Great Basin species of Cicindela belonging to the groups enumerated above, presenting evidence which tends to indicate that these groups have been incorrectly associated in the past. For example, Cicindela parowana Wickham is a well marked species and a representative of a distinct Great Basin group, being only distantly related to C. fulgida Say, under which it has been listed as a sub-species by Dr. Walther Horn (Genera Insectorum, 1906, p. 378). A new race of C. parowana is recorded herewith. Evidence is also presented to show that the senilis group of the Pacific Coast is closely related to the willistoni group and that the fulgida group does not enter the Great Basin as previously recorded by others.
