4977 - Helvibotys helvialis
Bartlesville, Washington County, Oklahoma, USA
August 26, 2009
Supported as Neohelvibotys neohelvialis by DNA barcoding, BOLD LPOKD223-09
This specimen is shown here: BOLD:AAE4911
Found at UV light near pond in wooded area of a flood plain.


Helvibotys helvialis
Is this an error or did the BOLD ID change? I noticed that this didn't fit the description for N. neohelvialis which should have a dark terminal band similar to the am. and pm. lines so I checked BOLD and found that this is now Helvibotys helvialis which seems more reasonable. Same for LPOKB944-09.

Edit - I see now that you did post LPOKB944-09 and you say that it is now in Helvibotys helvialis indicating that BOLD did change the ID.
