Identification
Mark Dreiling's photo #341803, BOLD MDOK-1109, was formerly posted at MPG as Pseudexentera spoliana following the determination at BOLD. All specimens from north of Mexico in BOLD:AAA3121 form a branch representing hodsoni. The spoliana identifications in this BIN appear to have been based on two USNM specimens, DNA-ATBI-6281 and DNA-ATBI-6282, which somehow were mislabeled at BOLD but have since been confirmed as hodsoni. True spoliana is gray with the entire basal area shaded. It does not typically have the distinct dark wedge shaped subbasal fascia on the dorsum of hodsoni.
Food
Larval host is oak (Quercus). (1)
See Also
Pseudexentera faracana has two forms, one streaked and the other fasciate as in hodsoni.
