Chrysoperla issues
Well, regrettably this source is fairly problematic for Chrysoperla species. The authors use a now-invalidated species concept, so their records of "C. carnea" refer to C. downesi and C. plorabunda. I've corrected our local species count based on current taxonomic trends. Other taxa look more reliably reported apart from a few transfers of genus (Dichochrysa to Pseudomallada and Chrysopodes (Neosuarius) placita to Kymachrysa).
