spelling
Hi Blaine - Thank you again for your prompt replies on so many of my submissions. I'm wondering about the spelling for this species. Evans in Beetles of ENA p.220 claims memnonius is a misspelling and it should be nemnonius? What do you think?

 
hey Jim
I have corrected BugGuide accordingly after consulting with specialists in this group!

 
Wow, I have never heard that...
let me check with Frank Etzler, a specialist on this genus.
