The Mexican species of Norvellina Ball are largely unknown or undescribed. Lindsay (1940) published a study of the 28 species and one variety of Norvellina known to occur in the United States, five of which, flavida Lindsay, seminuda (Say), mildredae (Ball), pulchella (Baker), and texana (Ball) have already been found in Mexico. No doubt others will be found there eventually. In this paper, seven new species of Norvellina are described: N. acuspina, N. uncata, N. adunca, N. denotata, N. forficata, N. cincta, and N. recepta. Other species, undoubtedly new, are represented by female specimens only, so these are not described, because the male specimens possess the best diagnostic characters for species separation. All holotypes and allotypes are in the DeLong Collection. Paratypes will be deposited in the collection of the United States National Museum.
