spmn in the TAMUIC

differentiating from Jadera hinnulea (bayardae)
I was looking at the guide page and saw this note about another similar species found in south Texas:
Jadera hinnulea (bayardae)
That web page says "May resemble: J. coturnix (ocelli much closer together than on bayardae, dorsal body color light brown)... Individuals with fewer light-colored scales on the body surface than the one picture here will be browner in color."
There are no J. hinnulea records on BugGuide. I am just wondering if there are some in among the J. coturnix.

got it: Jadera coturnix coturnix (Burmeister 1835)
marvelous bug! another Texan specialty in our area: see this
