TAXONOMIC STATUS: Several of these nominal taxa have been treated as separate species (e.g. Skorikov, 1931), although B. keriensis has also long been considered to be a broadly-distributed and variable species, including both yellow-banded and white-banded individuals throughout much of its range (Reinig, 1935, 1939; Williams, 1991 [pdf]).

The taxon alagesianus is morphologically closely similar to B. keriensis. Evidence from comparisons of a few COI barcodes is inconclusive at present. Until more evidence to the contrary is available from more detailed studies of patterns of variation, I shall continue to treat them as parts of a species-complex.

DISTRIBUTION: Oriental, Palaearctic Regions.
