Coordinator notes: I consulted with Curt Lehman, an experienced coordinator on moths to help review this sighting. We both agreed it is not P. honesteria, which MPG does not show as being documented in Bexar Co. Based on documented range and characteristics shown on MPG and the attached sighting on bugguide.net from nearby Edwards Co., we believe this is P. meskaria.
