Brown-lined Sallow Moth
Sympistis badistriga

Observation date: July 22, 2022
Submitted by: robpendergast
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Was wondering if I’d ever get a Sympistis
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: July 26, 2022
Coordinator notes: Another candidate for dissection: Sympistis badistriga, Sympistis tenuistriga, and Sympistis dinalda all look somewhat similar unless one of the experts says otherwise as to ID. Also, if you come across Sympistis chionanthi / Sympistis forbesi it would be best to have the moth dissected. They also look very similar but have different host plants.
