Sure. I did it many times. :) Actually, I didn't mean aurelia, but wondered why britomartis, that's all.

These beasts can be identified without microscoping genitalia as 50 to 50 :)

Fine! If so, doubts are irrelevant. :)

Evgeny! This very species and also #5795 have been not identified, but in that place there was another group which was identified (not by me) as britomartis. The man who identified may have checked genitalia. Doubts?

Why not aurelia?
