9140  - Tarache abdominalis

9140 - Tarache abdominalis
Bartlesville, Washington County, Oklahoma, USA
June 10, 2009
Supported as Tarache flavipennis by DNA barcoding, BOLD LPOKC352-09
This specimen is shown at BOLD:AAD6237
Found at UV light near pond in wooded area of a flood plain.

Moved from Tarache flavipennis.

This is out of range for Tarache flavipennis. Seems to matche Poole's description for Tarache abdominalis and barcodes for that species. I'll let BOLD know that they neglected to change the ID on this one when they changed the ID on your other examples in the same BIN.

How can two different moths both be BOLD:AAD6237?

One is LPOKA925-09 the other LPOKC352-09, maybe I just don't understand the system.

contain groups of moths that have very similar DNA sequences. In this case they are almost identical for the two species.
