Topic: Sarcophaga nigriventris Meigen 1826

I've just been looking at the Atlas for the distribution of Sarcophaga nigriventris. The search for this species pulls up 96 records for this combination however Pierretia nigriventris is listed in the search results under S. nigriventris but with 371 records. I think these are one and the same species but they don't appear to be linked to each other as synonyms. Checking the British Checklist has it as Sarcophaga (Myorhina) nigriventris Meigen, 1826. Have I understood this correctly? Apologies if I'm wrong!

Sarcophaga nigriventris = NBNSYS0000156287
Pierretia nigriventris = NBNSYS0000030320

Thanks for letting me know - not sure how they were missed but I have tidied up all the Pierretia spp and a few stray genera in the process :)
