I (ASH) created this species complex page based on DNA barcode data as part of my effort to sort through images of Blastobasidae on BugGuide. This is not a described species complex and should be considered an informal designation.

Represented on BOLD by the following BINs:

BOLD:AAC6102 (e. US and CAN — TX-OK-ON-NS-FL) — this is itself a species complex with within-BIN sequence divergence of more than 3%
BOLD:ABW8347 (s. FL: Collier, Monroe, Miami-Dade Cos.)
