carei Smith, 1932 [variety], Chrysopa oculata

holotype (1 female, pinned)

Verbatim: Cranbrook, B.C. 6.VI.1926  A.A. Dennys / CNC DIPTERA # 123334.

Interpretive data: CANADA. British Columbia: Cranbrook , 49°30′46.69″N 115°46′9.84″W, 6.vi.1926, A.A. Dennys, CNC Type No. 3308, CNC _Diptera123334GoogleMaps  .

Comments: Bickley (1952) noted that the “varietal names [of Chrysopa oculata  ] are no longer of any value”, but did not explicitly synonymize these names. Garland (1985a) used this to conclude that the name carei “no longer represents a valid taxonomic category… and is unavailable”. This interpretation would appear to be valid according to ICZN (1999: Art. 45.6.4), as the original description suggested that this was not a distinct taxon, but an unavailable name of infrasubspecific rank: “The chief excuse for indicating this colorational form as a variety is to indicate that this is not a distinct species, but a striking form attained by the gradual disappearance of vertical markings.” ( Smith 1932). Antennae missing.
