Platybunus vs Rilaena

I think we're all agreed that this is the same species, but in the UK Species Inventory the preferred genus name is currently Platybunus. There may be good reasons for this name to change to Rilaenus, and thanks for pointing this out, but iSpot works best if the recommended species dictionary names are used.

Platybunus vs Rilaena

All specialists agree to use genus Rilaena. Platybunus and RIlaena are not in the same subfamily.
