Moved to Perola clara
Moved from ID Request.

Tentative ID.

The only specimens of Perola from the US at BOLD are CNCLEP00099157 and CNCLEP00099156. Both specimens are in BIN BOLD:ACH0260 which DNA barcode separates from BOLD:ACY9870, the BIN for P. clara, by over 4%. While they look very similar to P. clara specimens, TL: Oaxaca, Mexico, I would be surprised if they were that species given the large separation in both COI sequence and location. I suspect that past reports of Perola clara refer to the same species as the CNC specimens whatever those turn out to be.
