Nothacrobeles borregi n. sp. is described from blow-sand in the vicinity of the roots of creosote bush (Larrea tridentata) from Anza Borrego State Park, San Diego, California. The new species is distinctive from all others of the genus by the specific morphology of the labial probolae and lips, as viewed with both interference light and scanning electron microscopy. The probolae include a basal ridge unique by its large size, smooth rim (lacking tines), and unusual large triangular platelet projections on each side; the probolae are also distinctive in having a knob-like ledge separate and posterior to the basal ridge. Nothacrobeles borregi n. sp. provides a new insight into homology of characters important for addressing problems with generic level classification in Cephalobinae. These hypotheses of homology suggest a basis for transferring N. laticollaris n. comb. (syn. Cervidellus laticollaris). Characteristics of Nothacrobeles in relation to Cervidellus and Stegelletina are discussed.
