Currently, BOLD has one specimen's image mis-identified to this species. I think that it should be labelled as Deltote bellicula. see here (comment from Bob Biagi 1/24/2021)

Note, after checking the BOLD page for Deltote bellicula, one image is apparently a mis-identified Geometrid species, Digrammia gnophosaria. (Hopefully they will correct those errors very soon and then we can remove these comments. I have notified them)
