Topic: Bibio lepidus / longipes

We still have the name Bibio lepidus Loew 1871 in Recorder etc, however in the current checklist this species name has been replaced by B. longipes Loew 1864. The revision is due to: SKARTVEIT, J. 2006. Synonymy notes in the Bibionidae (Diptera). Dipterists Digest (Second Series) 13: 23-25.

Can you do an update for this?
