Bold Systems samples are a mix of two or three species
grouped under the name Stamnodes fervefactaria, including S. deceptiva, and specimens from Sonora that may or may not be S. fervefactaria.

See note under "Info" section.

Moved from Stamnodes fervefactaria.

Looks to me like Bold Systems has two species
mixed in their sample for S. deceptiva. I haven't sorted out which "species" is which yet, but they do look different. I suspect this (along with all the rest posted on BugGuide) is really S. deceptiva. I also suspect that the two species are closely enough related that the Bold System analysis won't distinguish them reliably (if at all). It also seems possible that the two names really just represent color/pattern variation withon a single species (but I don't know them well enough to have a strong opinion - except, that they do look different.

Identified by Cliff Ferris. Still need spread photos. Just think, this photo has been whipped around from AZ to IA to MD, IN, WY and back to MD, IA at warp speed. (no rsvp, thanks).
