Moved to adjust placement in the BG-adopted classification
Moved from Trichapion simile.

There's a few to choose from in this page, but I think you got it right with Trichapion simile. It occurs in the northeast, so that's a fit too.

if not all of your simile are not correctly placed based on your specimens I have. Unfortunately, identifying Apion sensu latu is far from number one on my list of priorities, after putting a lot of time into them last year.

and the most common one where i grew up, too (i'll try to have our apionines expert-checked)


today - An Apion or one of the subgenera of Apion now recognized as genera.

looks similar to Trichapion simile Kirby
...but i'm not even sure whether the pun was intended
