Moved from Datana rotunda.

now Datana perfusa
Datana perfusa Dyar, 1923 is raised from synonymy of Datana perspicua Grote & Robinson, 1865 to full species status and includes Datana rotundata Draudt, 1934 (note correct spelling) as a new synonym in MONA Fascicle 22.1A (1).

Moved tentatively
Moved from Datana.

I believe this is Datana rotunda
.

 
Info?
I can't find a description for D. rotunda. What source are you using and how is D. neomexicana eliminated? I just realized that the BOLD samples for these two have a 100% match. Possibilities: one or both are misidentified, they should be synonymized, or the CO1 gene barcode for this species just does not work. I only mention the last one because there are a lot of species in the BIN group, BOLD:ACH9674.

 
The upcoming Notodontidae MONA fascicle will have a Datana key
Best to wait until it's published before I say anything else.

 
Wonderful!
But I didn't see a page created for D. rotunda. I found an identical comment of yours on another BG entry from Arizona. Thank you Kyhl!
