fergusoni vs. rotundata
Are you disagreeing with Bob's ID (which is not listed as a species on All-Leps)? Or are the two species synonymous? 8585 vs 8585.3...

 
Moth Fomerly Know As ...
Charley,
MPG descrbes, "This species was formerly known as 8585.3 Epidromia fergusoni Solis 1986, which is now a synonym of 8585.3 Epidromia rotundata (Herrich-Sch?ffer, 1869). J. D. Lafontaine & D. S. Dickel 2008: Lepid. Novae 1 (3-4) 109-115."

It probably should be E. rotundata, since Herrich-Schaffer beat out Solis by 117 years. But, I'll leave it to you guys to sort it out. I'm just pleased to have found such an elegant creature.
