Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Coordinator notes: Rhyacionia sp., possibly R. busckana or granti
I eliminated granti as a candidate due to granti feeding on Jack Pine (Pinus banksiana) which is found in Canada, US Northeast, and US Great Lakes region, but absent from the Southeast. That would leave busckana and frustrana as the two most likely candidates, with frustrana being less common and having some orange along the grey median band, making busckana the most likely choice. -JDR
