hard to remember which name won that battle of the nomenclature, after a very long day in the woods!

and here I was so proud of myself to even be able to data retrieve importuna … from my not always so accessible brain database. the perils of getting older and NOT having an eidetic memory. ;)

Didn’t you suggest a different name for this species? Not that I necessarily agree) but see your proposal on observation 93627
