  • Lynn Scott's Rivula propinqualis image
    and nearly out to the apex with two small dark dots marking the location of the reniform spot There may also be slight brown shading just inside the terminal line The hindwing usually shows just a pale trace of a postmedial line The larvae of Rivula propinqualis are believed to feed on grasses although the actual host plant s are apparently unknown Handfield 1999 Handfield indicates an adult flight season

    of the median is medium brown against which the orange reniform spot is readily apparent There is a blotch of white near the apex below which there is some medium brown shading outside the subterminal line The hindwing is pale grayish tan I estimate the wingspan to be about 2 cm or slightly more The host plant for Oxycilla malaca is apparently unknown For my general area Handfield 1999 indicates

  • Lynn Scott's Colobochyla interpuncta image
    yellow toward the inside and dark reddish brown toward the outside each forming a smooth curve across the wing The postmedial line terminates at the apex of the wing There may be evidence of darker shading between the postmedial line and the subterminal line although the specimen illustrated above does not show this The reniform spot is usually visible as black spot outside the medial line but the orbicular spot is smaller and less obvious The hindwing is grayish Covell 1983 indicates a wingspan of 2 to 2 4 cm When I first see this species each year I have to think hard for a moment about its identity as it reminds me somewhat of the geometrid Metanema determinata Hodges 6820 even though the two are actually quite different in appearance and resting position According to Handfield 1999 the literature indicates that larvae of Colobochyla interpuncta have been reared on willow but the host plant chosen in the wild is apparently unknown For my general area Handfield indicates two generations per year with adult flight seasons from about mid June to mid July and from late July into the second half of August I have recorded this species in 2000

    in dark brown The antemedial and postmedial lines are dark brown and somewhat scalloped The reniform spot is quite distinctive when lighting conditions are right to show its very dark blue almost black color with a tiny silvery dot in the center The subterminal line is double with a whitish filling At its inner margin the lines and shading on the lighter hindwing reflect a similar pattern to that of

  • Lynn Scott's Hypenodes caducus image
    Canadian National Collection in Ottawa Hypenodes caducus is one of four species of Hypenodes that have been recorded from the Ottawa area and the only one I have seen to date at my location The forewing of Hypenodes caducus is brown with strongly contrasting markings The antemedial line is whitish with large rounded zigzags The median is the darkest brown part of the wing with a darker shade in its outer half The postmedial line is blackish and angles sharply outward to form a box shape around the black reniform spot The pm line is bordered with white along the outside edge and this white extends outward just below the costa to reach the apex This part of the costa has four small white marks beginning with one at the end of the pm line The subterminal line is near white with diffuse dark brown shading on either side of it darkest just inside the st line The terminal line is a row of short black dashes The hindwing is pale brownish gray This is a small noctuid with wingspan ranging from 1 3 to 1 5 cm Covell 1983 The larval host plant for Hypenodes caducus is unknown Handfield
