Hello all,

In an important pollinator paper from 1923 (Clements, F.E. & Long, F.L. (1923) Experimental pollination, an outline of the ecology of flowers and insects. Carneige institution), several US insect names were apparently misspelled. I have figured out all but these two and wonder if anyone here can help decipher correct names so I can get the order, family or maybe even current genus:

Cateres pennatus 
Halicyoides mamus

As an example of the tricky spelling the "Cenis uhleri" listed in the book is in fact Oeneis uhleri.

Thanks in advance and seasons greetings,
