Doryodes tenuistriga? - Doryodes tenuistriga - Female
Padre Island National Seashore, Kleberg County, Texas, USA
December 27, 2019
Size: ~19 mm TL
Came to sheet lit by Coleman lantern at campsite along the South Beach section of the national seashore. D. tenuistriga seems to fit best according to location, flight period, narrow dark stripe and size. I spent a considerable amount of time going thru BugGuide expert comments and the 2015 Lafontaine & Sullivan revision of the genus to arrive at a proposed ID. Only three Doryodes species are likely in Texas, D. broui, D. reineckei and D. tenuistriga. There is also some contention that D. latistriga's range could include TX, but its dark vertical stripe is rather wide. The dark vertical stripe on D. reineckei is generally rather faded. Lafontaine & Sullivan mention that D. tenuistriga "is likely to only be confused with D. broui". D. broui at 13-15.5 mm FW male is considerably smaller than D. tenuistriga at 16.5-18 mm FW male. Also D. broui tends to have rather limited flight periods, whereas D. tenuistriga is known to fly year round.
