cedillamuerta Picayune, MS (Zone 8a) Hello. I just wanted to let you know that this scorpionfly actually belongs to the species P. nuptialis.
vossner Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) thank you for your comments. I will forward to the Bug Files people. Unless the distinctions are very subtle, there seems to be confusion bet p. americana and p. nuptialis. Definitelyi confused me.
cedillamuerta Picayune, MS (Zone 8a) The Panorpidae are a very difficult group. P. nuptialis, americana, and lugubris are the only 3 that are readily distinguishable in N. America, and even then I have to take a second glance when trying to distinguish the first 2.
