A Pyralid Moth - Paracorsia repandalis

4962 Hahncappsia marculenta
Found at blacklight.

Moved from Hahncappsia marculenta.

Greaat find! I'm writing up a paper on this species' occurrence in North America for the Lepidopterist Society News, and I would like to include this record in the paper, if that's okay with you. This species occurs at least from Indiana to Pennsylvania and also in adjacent Ontario, but I suspect it is being overlooked due to its similarity to our native Ostrinia and Hahncappsia.
