Thanks Abigail!
Do you want a separate page for 'phelpsi form'?

 
no, keep them together
If it were a subspecies I'd want a new page, but since it's only considered a color form they should stay together.

probably Scymnus nebulosus, "phelpsii" form
Totally yellowish-red above, black meso- and meta-sternum and first 3 abdominal segments, British Columbia location - perfect match for the "phelpsii" form of S. nebulosus. Check out the type specimen at Harvard MCZ here.
