Male (ID determined by disection)
Tentative (note small discal dot and a faint row of postmedial dots on underside of each wing)
- Per Rindge, (1956): "Another species that sometimes is confused with erythemaria
is Gueneria similaria
(Walker). The present species can be separated by the pectinate antennae in the male, as the male antennae of similaria
are simple. In addition, the latter species has on the underside of each wing a small discal dot and a faint row of postmedial dots, which are not present in erythemaria
Anecdotally, G. similaria has a weaker bend in the antemedian line and heavier bend of the costal margin near the base.
