Hisserdude Posted January 12, 2016 Share Posted January 12, 2016 Based on the description of the species, it appears that wing shade is the only difference between species. Perhaps they are all the same species, and wing color is the equivalent of hair color in humans, and should not have been enough to warrant itself a different species in the first place. A genital dissection would be more reliable in determining if it should be classified as its own species. For being a science, taxonomy is highly subject to opinion. Yeah, this all seems fishy, I think there may not even be a T.Bernhardti. Guess we all have T.petiveriana then. And on top of everything, it looks like we are not gaining a new Therea species. Bummer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
