Drymeia neoborealis (Snyder, 1949)   Fig. 1C View Figure 1

Aricia borealis   Malloch, 1919: 64.

Helina neoborealis   Snyder, 1949: 122 [replacement name for Aricia borealis   Malloch, 1919].

Type material examined.

Aricia borealis   - Holotype male labelled "Bernard/ Harbour/ N.W. T./ July"; Canadian/ Arctic/ Expedition/ F. d. 1916"; TYPE / H. Aricia borealis   / Mall./ No. 1176 [red]"/ “374” ( CNC). Allotype [belongs to Spilogona tundrae   Schnabl] female labelled " Helina   / PARATYPE / Aricia borealis   / Mall/ No 1176 [yellow]"/ Cape Bathurst/ N. W. T."; "Arctic/ Expedition/ July 26 191[no last digit]"; " F. Johansen / Coll."; “387”; " Spilogona   / Spilogona tundrae   Schn./ det. V / Sorokina, 2019" ( CNC)   .

Other material examined.

More than 50 males and females: Nearctic: Canada: Northwest Territories: Banks Island, Masik River , Victoria Island ; Nunavut: Aulavik , Baker Lake , Cambridge bay , Char river nr Ranking Inlet , Chesterfield , Landing Lake (7.5 km NW of Rankin inlet). Palaearctic : Russia: Chukotka AO: Wrangel Island ( BUIC, CNC, SZMN)   .

Distribution.

Nearctic: Canada (Northwest Territories, Nunavut); USA (Alaska, California, Colorado). Palaearctic: Russia (Wrangel Island).

DNA Barcode.

BOLDBIN: BOLD:ACA8935. See Suppl. material 1: Table S1 for GenBank accession numbers.

Remarks.

Huckett (1975: 103) mentions an undescribed Eupogonomyia   species from California (female only) that would be distinguished from D. neoborealis   based on the complete absence of a prealar bristle (the prealar is short but often visible in D. neoborealis   ) as well as projecting oral margins. We have found these features to be variable in the material we have examined (including specimens with DNA barcodes) and conclude that the unnamed species mentioned by Huckett (1975) falls within the range of known variations for D. neoborealis   . While the COI sequence from the only Russian specimen in our data set showed a minimum intraspecific p-distance of 1.37% with the Canadian specimens, all DNA barcodes for D. neoborealis   clustered together in BINBOLD:ACA8935 (Fig. 25 View Figure 25 ) with a maximum intraspecific p-distance of 1.52%.
