Papaipema - Papaipema leucostigma

Papaipema - Papaipema leucostigma
Pine Brook, Isanti County, Minnesota, USA
August 30, 2003
Size: WS (pinned) 35 mm.
Suspected lysimachiae, but on further study FW spots seem a better match for leucostigma, including MJ Hatfield's reared image. Also a better match size-wise to Forbes's account describing leucostigma with a WS of 30-40 mm and lysimachiae only 25-30 mm. Also, as per Forbes, PM line is not sharply bent (and this should also rule out the 'very similar' larger pterisii).
