How can I tell the difference between T. frisoni and T. latipennis? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

As you can see from your earlier posts

We have just received notification of some of our images being frisoni rather than latipennis. V is in the process of getting the notifications and moving the images and will likely add more information to the Info pages soon. We can't answer your question, and have the same question ourselves, but expecting that we will be hearing from G. Pelletier through V very shortly. Interesting new development, no? Apparently there are actually five species in our area!

The recent move promted me
My latest posts are a result of the recent move to frisoni. I'm not sure whether ALL of the individuals in my photo collection are also frisoni, or are latipennis, or something else. I've e-mailed V to ask him to teach me about the differences, and he's responded that he's also unsure how to tell them apart. Yes, hopefully G. Pelletier can shed some light for us. I am an eager student!
