Comments. These specimens were once determined as S. onkos (Ricker)   , a species shown to be distributed mainly in the northeastern Nearctic region by Kondratieff & Kirchner (2009). Sweltsa onkos   likely does not occur in Kentucky. Kondratieff & Kirchner (2009) included records of S. hoffmani   from eastern Kentucky (Lawrence and Rowan Counties) but none of S. onkos   from the state.
