Comments: Formerly known as Olenellus mojavensis. The correct author, spelling, and generic designation is not sure by us. Is it mohavensis or mojavensis? We've seen two authors for this species (Resser, 1928) and (Crickway, 1933). Currently this species is assigned to Bristolia. Anyone having more information on this species, please contact Kevin (and provide literature references).
