[T] - DNA - Mark Dreiling
Distribution: Type locality: West Virginia
Similar Species:
  • Best separated from similar species by genitalia. Mark Dreiling's DNA tested specimen from Oklahoma seems to be a poor match to the original description and is far out of range. It is placed by DNA barcode in the same BIN group with kanawha but the distance, ~.75%, is great enough that a species level identification should be considered tentative especially given the location and general appearance.
  • Pinned specimens of related species. (Hint: select View by Region on the related species page.)
