Omosita nearctica Omosita nearctica

sure; basically, O. colon that happen to live in America ))
Moved from ID Request.

 
Differences?
Are O. nearctica and O. colon distinguishable at all, save the locality?

 
all i know...
...is they've been happily kept as a single Holarctic sp. [colon] until someone started a separatist movement
i have a suspicion they'll be back together soon
