Coordinator notes: D. copa has not yet been collected in Missouri. Terry Harrison notes: "I would go with D. costarufoella, but that is based only on the images on BugGuide, and I don't know how reliable they are. This of course is followed with the usual caveat that dissection would be the only safe route to an ID, as these two spp. are very similar on external appearance."
