The new species lotharmeyerite from the Ojuela mine, Mapimi, Durango, Mexico was recently described by Dunn (1983). Unfortunately, the very small crystals in drusy growths which that author had at his disposal did not permit the determination of a number of important characteristics. The availability of larger, individual crystals from the same locality now makes possible a more complete description of the species.
