Is the lack of a midline indicative of rubra? I've seen comments from Andy Hamilton saying dissection is the only way to separate corni and rubra.

According to a key on Erythroneura that I downloaded, both E. rubrella and E. corni have a midline while E. rubra does not.
Btw, the hopper site I'm working on will be of great use to you (once its finished). I can show you the 'rough draft' if you are interested (just send me an email)

Edit: Ken, I actually have a word document that I created last week for E. rubrella, rubra, and corni. Send me an email and I'll send it to you.
