Clover Looper - Caenurgina crassiuscula

Clover Looper - Caenurgina crassiuscula
DuPage County, Illinois, USA

Moved from Forage Looper.

crassiuscula
I believe this is a crassiuscula, not erechtea. Covell notes that in erechtea the dark bands across the forewing do not touch the inner margin, while in crassiuscula they do touch the inner margin, as the AM (more basal) band does on the specimen in the photo. Just my thoughts. Nice picture.

noctuidae
This is the Forage Looper, Caenurgina erechtea Hodges# 8739
