Submitted by: robpendergast
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Attracted to lights
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Ilona L.

Coordinator notes: Tentative ID. This species seems to be a difficult one to identify judging by the few that are IDed on BG and MPG. I note that the ones placed in this species on BAMONA seem to have quite a large variance in appearance which might indicate that some may not be correctly identified. Just my opinion, however.
