I remember reading that neoniger and brevicornis often fly at the same time/together

Has a cross breed of them ever been recorded?  I wouldn't be surprised if it also happened with niger and flavus.


How's your day?  :)

It’s not possible.

They are completely different subgenera, so a crossbreed is pretty much impossible.
