Laphria aktis is nearly identical to Laphria sericea and another undescribed species discovered by Stephen Bullington. Males of the three species are rather straightforward to identify from a clear view of the genitalia, but females are essentially impossible to determine without a specimen.

There are 5 records in the project database.
