Coordinator notes: The problem here is that BAMONA has not yet corrected the name decided by the International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature. The correct scientific name here is Callophrys dumetorum perplexa with the latter name being the subspecies name. The Coastal Green Hairstreak is another species, Callophrys viridis. C. dumetorum has the common name Bramble Hairstreak. I am putting these comments in to correct these submissions when this group has its submissions corrected and for your information...Ken Davenport
