status

 

Arge pagana (Panzer, 1797) 

Tenthredo pagana  Panzer, 1797

Hylotoma? stephensii  (Leach, 1817, Hylotoma  )

Distribution

England, Wales

Notes

Arge stephensii  differs very markedly, in the extreme development of pale body markings, from all known W. Palaearctic populations of Arge pagana  . Traditionally, Arge stephensii  has been regarded as an endemic British subspecies of Arge pagana  . Further studies [here a DNA analysis might offer good clues] are definitely required. The possibility cannot be excluded that Arge stephensii  is a separate species originally introduced from the E. Palaearctic or Oriental Regions, where Arge  is both extremely species-rich and poorly investigated.
