Explanation of Names
BIMACULANA: from "bi" (two) + "macula" (spot); refers to the two large spots on the forewing, and is the orgin of the suggested common name Two-spotted Carolella.
Wingspan about 13-14 mm.
Adult - forewing light brown with two large dark brown patches in median and subterminal areas; median patch does not reach inner margin creating two separate patches when wings held together at rest.
Maryland to Florida, west to Texas and Oklahoma.
Eugnosta bimaculana was originally assigned #3783 in the 1983 Hodges Checklist. At that time, most of the species in Cochylini (then considered to be Cochylidae) were not assigned to genera. Today, they are placed mostly in a variety of genera which, if the old numbering system is retained, would result in a list of confusing appearance.
