Notes.

This species is rather widely distributed in the Nearctic. It had previously been recorded from Greenland by Papp (1989), and here we also recorded it from the CAA for the first time, based on two specimens collected in Baffin and Bylot Islands (voucher codes CNC497416, CNCH0395). It is clearly a southern species, scarcely reaching its northernmost range in the High Arctic. The majority of the specimens identified in BOLD as C. yakutatensis correspond to BIN BOLD:ABZ4485, but other specimens, including the one from Bylot Island, actually belong to BIN BOLD:AAA5701. Solving the limits of C. yakutatensis will require examination of specimens from across the species range, which is beyond the scope of the present paper.
