Notiobia cephalus (Casey) is recognized as a valid species, supported by external morphological differences and allopatric distribution. This Floridian precinctive species was previously considered to be conspecific with N. nitidipennis (LeConte), which ranges from Texas to southern Ontario and Quebec. The name N. tenuitarsus (Casey) is removed from synonymy with N. nitidipennis and is considered to be a junior synonym of N. cephalus.
