 Comments
       
  Comment: Concerning North American records that are attributable to another species, Pelham (2008:445) notes of Cephise procerus (Plötz, 1880), "Recorded in error from Texas, later corrected to Polythrix octomaculata by Freeman (1967: 278); procerus is now placed in Cephise Evans, 1952. See Austin and Mielke (2000). Extralimital"
