Confusion regarding Chauliodes rastricornis and C. pectinicornis
On the page describing Chauliodes rastricornis, http://bugguide.net/node/view/8569, it states
Compare C. pectinicornis. Head and pronotum have dark markings on light brown background, as opposed to yellowish markings on dark brown background of C. pectinicornis. Antennae of female serrate, of male, pectinate. So, apparently, a Chauliodes with serrate antennae should be a female C. rastricornis. Note earlier flight (spring) of rastricornis in most of east. C. pectinicornis typically flies in summer.
Yet the ones with the yellow markings are all ID'd as C. rastricornis. I am thoroughly confused. Which is which?
