This species was also recorded by Casey from several other states in the USA under a variety of names: Dolosota abundans Casey, 1910   [Missouri], Dolosota flaccida Casey, 1910   [Mississippi], Dolosota redundans tergina Casey, 1910   [Pennsylvania], Dolosota secunda Casey, 1910   [Iowa], Dolosota sequax Casey, 1910   [Iowa], and Pancota laetabilis Casey, 1906   [New York] ( Gusarov 2003c). All of these names were later transferred to Acrotona   and synonymized with A. scopula   by Gusarov (2003c).
