White-headed Prominent - Symmerista

White-headed Prominent - Symmerista
south Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
September 4, 2008
At lights in a small mesic patch under an oak-willow canopy...

Species det tentative, based in part on this being the only sp. in the genus on the nearby UT Field Station list...

Moved from White-headed Prominent. There are three species of Symmerista in eastern North America which cannot be separated without examination of the male eighth abdominal sternite. Range would support this being albifrons, but I'd like to move all images w/o sternite examination to the genus page until I have to opportunity to sort through them more carefully.
