Members of the crocea group usually have distinctively shorter marginal striations.

I’m not familiar with a fulva-like species from the west coast. New to me, I think.

Very best,


Thanks for the comment, Tim.

I had been under the impression that “constricta” was synonymous with one or more of “strangulata”, “ceciliae”, “borealisorora.” But I now see that constricta is a western NA species that I have probably not ever seen. Color of your specimen is very similar to our eastern NA fulva type(s), though.
