Explanation of Names
Oberea pruinosa Casey 1913
Per Lingafelter (2007), Oberea pruinosa Casey 1913 is morphologically identical to and a potential synonym of Oberea schaumii LeConte 1852 (1)
the descriptions of Oberea schaumii, caseyi, pruinosa in Lingafelter (2007) and Yanega (1996) are in disagreement with each other. (1)(2)
