“I personally prefer to use names I know”

A preference for a name has no bearing on the extent to which it may or may not be the appropriate one for a given specimen.

“Others here require proof for verification of species.”

Science and proof kind of go hand in hand…

“If I had a microscope I could support more of my ID’s.”

You could also find that what you “prefer” to call S. scutellata ought to go by a different name, as the genus’ leading expert, Beñat Jeannerot, did, for most of the North American material he examined. See Observation 26456

you need a microscope to distinguish between the various species.
