Narrow-winged Borer - Photedes enervata

Narrow-winged Borer - Photedes enervata
Prairie Haven, Lincoln Township, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
August 20, 2019
Came to UV lights. ID confirmed by Les Ferge.

Moved to Photedes enervata
Moved from Narrow-winged Borer.

Jim Vargo thinks this is enervata. Wing shape should separate the two but it is not obvious in un-spread specimens so the ID is tentative.


Photedes enervata?
Dissection may be required but Photedes enervata might be a better fit.

Thanks Steve!
It does look like enervata is a possibility. Should I move it to the genus page?
