Hypotrix alamosa (Barnes, 1904)

Family: Noctuidae
Subfamily: Noctuinae
Identification: Occurs in two forms. In the darker, more common form the forewing is reddish brown with the maculation sharply defined by dark-red lines. The medial area is similar in color to the remainder of the forewing and the postmedial line touches, or almost touches, the reniform spot. The pale form of H. alamosa looks like the specimens have been bleached, so the forewing is light orange with the maculation weakly defined by fine yellow lines"
