Coordinator notes: You can note the differences in pattern between Eremobina leucoscelis and Platypolia mactata by copying both photos from MPG and comparing the two photos. What I noticed was the antemedial line which has a deep "V" in P. mactata and is an even "ripple" (my term) in E. leucoscelis.
