Gymnoclytia, probably G. occidua but I can’t find any info on G. minuta to rule it out. I also haven’t been able to figure out which “Brooks 1946” reference is the right one for this genus.
TIA

thanks
I'll create a "book" entry for that paper but need to know what the appropriate taxonomic level is (the paper's abstract doesn't say what it covers). From what I can find, the Rhodogyne complex includes at least Gymnosoma and Gymnoclytia. I'll post the book at Gymnosomatini if the complex doesn't cover anything outside of that tribe.
