Moved from Pimaphera.

Moved from Ennominae.


Pimaphera yes, but I think it is . I have sent several to BOLD which tested that species and reared one. He corrected the species for George Smiley's caterpillar submissions, so I believe he feels that the Texas members of this Genus are primarily P. sparsaria.

Thanks Ann. I submitted a P.
Thanks Ann. I submitted a P. sparsaria a year or so ago, then recently noticed this one seemed to have more lines than spots. So I thought it might be different. P. sparsaia it is.

Check out the bold public database for CCDB-24015 D03 - it is one I had tested and to me it looks like yours.

I have some in my files that look like that too.
