This appears to be one of those tough ones where the experts have not
reached agreement. For our purposes, in AKA, we should follow Ken Lazara's
KMI-4 (when issued) and he does not list *deltaense* and only includes
[http://ARK.killi.net/AList.htm has the list of names, so we can use them
now, but lacks all the fill-in data we can expect in the final KMI version.
We should always check there first, if in doubt.]
OTOH, Huber, in _Killi-Data 2000_, lists *fallax* as "*nom. dubium*" or
doubtful name, and *deltaense* as a valid species. Oh well... ;-)
