Erythridula stolata McAtee 

Studied material: 9 ♂, 2 ♀, USA, Tennessee, Sevier Co., Great Smoky Mountain National Park , Twin Creeks , Malaise trap, 35°41'6" N 83°29'56" W, 5 XI–5 XII 2001, col. IC Stocks, ( INHSAbout INHS).GoogleMaps 

Notes: Specimens we identified as E. stolata  collected in GSMNPAbout GSMNP exhibit some differences from previously studied specimens of this species. Although the habitus and color pattern are typical, the shape of the aedeagus is slightly different. The basal processes of the aedeagus were very short or absent, and a pair of flat triangular distal processes was well developed. Based on comparison with specimens we interpret this newly observed variation as intraspecific but additional study, ideally including analysis of molecular data, is warranted.
