  • Lynn Scott's Lithacodia albidula image
    after emergence My thanks to Dr J Donald Lafontaine of Agriculture Canada for helping me to identify the first nondescript specimens of this species that I encountered The forewings of Lithacodia albidula are pale yellowish tan in color with darker mottling and shading Antemedial and postmedial lines are creamy white bounded by tan along the edge next to the median The reniform spot is outlined in white The subterminal line is whitish preceded by a yellowish tan shade slightly darker than the ground color of the wing The hindwings are pale yellowish tan Unless the specimen is very fresh and unworn the forewing may appear very pale and yellowish with no obvious markings I estimate the wingspan to be about 2 cm or slightly more According to Handfield 1999 the larvae of Lithacodia albidula feed on grasses He indicates an adult flight season from the end of May into early August for my general area My records to date for Lithacodia albidula each date representing the night of are in the table below Month 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

  • Lynn Scott's Anterastria teratophora (Agriopodes teratophora) image
    under review by a number of lepidopterists and it is likely that there will be significant changes In the meantime I have followed Handfield in accepting the placement of this species in the Eustrotiini tribe of Acontiinae but have retained the original Hodges number pending the publication of a new checklist at some future date Anterastria teratophora is a small noctuid with a wingspan from 1 9 to 2 5 cm Covell 1984 The forewing is dark brownish gray with a somewhat mottled appearance The scalloped antemedial line is often indistinct but is quite clear in the photo at top right The postmedial line is also difficult to distinguish except for a white bar at the costa and a smaller white mark at the inner margin The orbicular and claviform spots have dark outlines filled with the ground color The most obvious feature is the white reniform spot which encloses several patches of dark scales and may appear to bleed into the white bar at the costal end of the pm line Near the apex a short jagged white line at the costa marks the end of the subterminal line There is a small blackish tuft of scales about a

  • Lynn Scott's Cerma cora image
    The olive brown color tends to be more greenish in a very fresh specimen changing to a more brownish color in older specimens There is an area of white right at the base of the wing The antemedial and postmedial lines are black double and filled with white The median is mostly white except for a small olive brown area at the inner margin just outside the antemedial line The orbicular and reniform spots are outlined in black filled with white The very round orbicular spot is sometimes surrounded by a circular area of clear white as in the bottom photos A series of wavy black lines crosses the median sometimes surrounding the reniform spot but other times surrounding the orbicular spot The jagged somewhat intermittent subterminal line is black with some white along its outer edge A scalloped terminal line of black followed by white precedes the brown fringe streaked with white The hindwing is whitish shaded in gray brown along most of the outer margin with a dark terminal line and white fringe A large reddish brown tuft of scales protrudes a little less than halfway down the abdomen usually quite visible even when the wings are closed

    dark grayish blue highlighted with white along the outer edge The antemedial line is olive green In the median the orbicular and reniform spots are outlined by fine black lines there is some light blue gray filling in the center of the reniform spot Several parallel bluish to greenish gray lines of varying thickness cross the center of the median clearest at the inner margin The postmedial line is olive green and the area beyond it has areas of reddish brown near black and gray with a whitish area near the midpoint of the outer margin A slightly scalloped white terminal line is followed by dark fringe with streaks of white The hindwing is white with a dark terminal line Nearly halfway down the abdomen there is a large tuft of reddish brown scales followed by a smaller tuft of white tipped with reddish brown most visible in the two photos at top Covell 1984 indicates a wingspan of 2 8 to 3 3 cm for this species According to Handfield 1999 the larvae of Cerma cerintha feed on a variety of rose cherry hawthorn and apple species He indicates an adult flight season from the later part of May
