By Greene, Charles T
Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington, volume 20, on pages 69-71, 1918
descriptions of Myxosargus nigricormis, as well as Madiza conicola and Chrysotoxum coloradensis

ITIS says Madiza conicola is a junior synonym of Hapleginella conicola and that Chrysotoxum coloradense is an invalid junior synonym of Chrysotoxum fasciatum. There’s no ITIS listing for Chrysotoxum coloradensis as it’s spelled in the original paper.
