Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: June 11, 2022
Coordinator notes: Similar-looking in some ways to Phalaenostola eumelusalis. However, note the long labial palps which is characteristic of P. metonalis. There are also other differences in the AM and PM lines. I see that you had the correct ID on iN.
