Moved from Echthodopa pubera.

I believe this is a male Echthodopa because, while
some Eudioctria share having black femora and orange tibiae, and the males having the basal half of the wings distinctly white, the Eudioctria have thin diffuse mystaxes, and Echthodopa males have a bright yellow mystax that tends to hang down like a curtain. This species, pubera, differs from the other species of Echthodopa by very slight distinctions, not visible in these photos, but Ed Trammel collected this one in north-west Arkansas, where other examples of E. pubera have been taken. See Echthodopa formosa.

Moved from Echthodopa.


I believe this is actually
Echthodopa pubera (very closely related to Eudioctria) and I am going to move it to that page shortly, and make some other changes in the Eudioctria and Echthodopa pages (I will be following the helpful keys in Adisoemarto and Wood, "The Nearctic Species of Dioctria And Six Related Genera."
