Explanation of Names
Sympistis tenuistriga (McDunnough, 1940), originally described as a variety of Sympistis badistriga, is treated as a full species in Pohl et al. (2018) (1) and Schmidt et al. (2018) (2) based on genital and barcode differences.

Sympistis badistriga - "... the things that strike me as most different from tenuistriga are: the white prothoracic collar compared to the almost black thorax; the streakier wings; the wider streaks from the wing base and in the cell from the orbicular spot to the subterminal area; and the whiter hind wings in both males and females" - Don Lafontaine (pers. comm. 11/21/2018)
