Wagner, D.L. & T.L. McCabe, 2011. A new Zanclognatha from eastern North America and a preliminary key to the larvae of the genus (Lepidoptera, Erebidae, Herminiinae). ZooKeys 149: 89-101.

The adult of a widespread but previously undescribed species of Zanclognatha Lederer is described from eastern North America. Images of the mature larva and life history data for Zanclognatha dentata sp. n. are included, along with a preliminary key to the larvae of ten eastern North American Zanclognatha species.

Similar species discussed include Z. protumnusalis, protumnusalis, martha, lituralis.

Sorry, take a look at the view of your post
here. You will see that the hot link is not visible because the end of the link is truncated due to the length of the submission. BugGuide doesn't post the entire text if it is longer than some fixed given length. Our guess is that if you just dropped the word 'species' after Zanclognatha in the second line, or some such shortening of the total text, then the end of the link would not be truncated and the hot link would appear. We're not certain that is the case, because we don't have the authority to edit your post and play with the possibilities. But that is what we were trying to say. Thanks for the post.

Got It
It didn't occur to me to look at the result in that view. Let me know if it still doesn't work or there are any other problems. Thanks!

Nice - I may try the larval key
This posting has just a few too many letters for the link to appear on the unopened page. Not sure if you can edit and delete a word or two so the link appears?

I'm not sure what you are asking. the url is:,

Another way to get to it is:

I don't recall ever adding a Books or Links so any help would be appreciated.
