Dear Lep-lovers,

Martin Honey kindly pointed out that I misspelled the species epithet of the
Metarranthis about which I sent the query pasted below. The correct name is
Metarranthis mestusata.

Thanks, Hugh

Hello Fellow Leppers,

Does anyone know how tell Metarranthis metusata from M refractaria? I looked
at a long series of both species last week at the USNM and could not see any
consistent differences. Alternatively, can anyone tell me where the
description of M metusata was published?

Thanks, Hugh
