Coordinator notes: There are late July records for this species in Michigan, but I do not know what county those were from. It certainly looks like Amblyscirtes vialis. But it seems to be at least a month too late, especially for a place just across the river from extreme southwestern Ontario. There are no Ontario records within about 150 km of that spot. Are there no other southern Michigan species which it could be? rosslayberry@yahoo.ca
