|Comment||Synonymy: Uma n. notata is more closely related to U. inornata than to U. n. rufopunctata (Wilgenbusch & de Queiroz 2000 and others). HEIFETZ (1941) synonymized U. rufopuncata with U. notata notata (which he distinguished from U. notata cowlesi). Populations formerly assigned to U. rufopunctata from the Mohawk Dunes, Yuma Co., AZ appear to represent a currently undescribed cryptic species (Trépanier and Murphy, 2001). Gottscho et al. 2016 concluded that U. rufopuncata is a hybrid between U. notata and U. cowlesi. However, Crother et al. 2017 find their results to be inconsistent, with some analyses supporting the status of U. rufopunctata as a separate species (although with introgression from both U. notata and U. cowlesi). Crother et al. 2017 therefore have retained U. rufopunctata pending further study. Populations formerly assigned to U. rufopunctata from the Mohawk Dunes, Yuma Co., AZ appear to represent a currently undescribed cryptic species (Trépanier and Murphy, 2001).|
