Coordinator notes: Adults of E. diversilineata and E. gracilineata cannot be separated by appearance alone without rearing or dissection. However, the forewing measures do not overlap (Lesser 12-15 mm; Greater, 16-19 mm). Thus, photographs with a millimeter rule are crucial for identification (Info according to Bugguide.net).
