Identification
"Hypotrix diplogramma is unmistakable in appearance. The subterminal line is a diffuse series of dark streaks, so the gray shading of the terminal area, so well defined in Hypotrix ferricola, bleeds into the subterminal area in H. diplogramma. Most of the forewing is cream colored with fine black streaks on and between the veins, and the dark shading intensifies toward the posterior margin of the wing, forming a large black patch in some specimens" (1).
Range
"From eastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico southward at least to Mexico City" (1).
Habitat
"Most records are from ponderosa pine forests" (1).
Season
"Adults fly from late March to late October, probably representing multiple generations" (1).
