I think you are correct with the latin name but the common name is Twin-spot Carpet not Striped ,that is Nebula salicata.

Wrong names

Unfortunately iSpot is playing up at the moment. I actually put in Twin Spot Carpet and it was iSpot that changed it, which is why the latin name is correct. I have had several that this has happened to, this one is not as reidiculous as some of the others. I have reported it to them and they are looking into.Vary frustrating!
