Leucania solita
Per Troubridge (2020), this is Leucania solita Walker, 1856. It is unclear if this species was raised to full species status from synonymy of humidicola but until I see a publication contradicting Troubridge (2020) or receive expert advise, I will treat solita s good at MPG. L. humidicola from Florida is now treated as Leucania elephas Troubridge, 2020.

Moved
Moved from Leucania.

This specimen has received a 100% match to L. humidicola (L. solita a synonym) and can be seen at TXLEP272-16 in the public database.

 
Not Sure
This does not match the description and images for Leucania humidicola by Poole that well. There are several BINs at BOLD with humidicola, BOLD:AAD6861 (the BIN with your sample), BOLD:AAE3308 (probably the BIN for infatuans), BOLD:ACY8873 and BOLD:ACP7324. I'm not suggesting you move this just yet. I'm just pointing out that the BOLD ID has issues.
