Field Marks:
"Type not in existence... It is possible that niveella is an immaculate form of the preceding species, described as B. simulans in the latter species, the markings sometimes tend to be obsolescent. In the absence of the type, however, definite determination is impossible and niveella must be regarded as an unrecognized species." - Braun (1963)
