Michael L. Ferro, the collection manager at the Clemson University Arthropod Collection, recently published the article ‘Fourteen new species of Sonoma Casey (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Pselaphinae) with a key to species from western North America‘ in ‘Insecta Mundi’, a journal of world insect systematics.

The article describes fourteen new beetles species, all belonging to the Sonoma genus, that were discovered by Ferro after examining specimens from eighteen different institutions. The beetles are small predators, mainly found in leaf litter and rotten wood. With these new discoveries, the genus now has fifty-seven species, with forty from western North America and seventeen from the eastern United States.

Some of the new species were named after famous people, including Sonoma stewarti (named after Jon Stewart) and Sonoma colberti (named after Stephen Colbert) which has only been found in Shasta County, California.
