Ptenothrix beta again?


Ptenothrix sp.
At we have such specimens tentatively as sp.1 Janssens & Moorehead 2008.

Is that the same as
BugGuide's Species 1 (Ptenothrix Species 1)--or are we talking about two different species?

Species 1 in Bug Guide corresponds with sp.3 Janssens & Moorehead 2008 in

that makes perfect sense. :)

Well perhaps they will be able to ID to species from the specimen. Then we can move them all over to a species page. Thanks!
