Explanation of Names
Norvellina seminuda (Say 1830)
seminuda = 'half-naked'
Similar to N. novica, but wings shorter. The brown band varies in exact shape, but is always at least as wide as the white space between it and the tip of the scutellum. In N. novica it is narrower than that space, in part due to the longer wings. --Andy Hamilton
