See Also
Similar exteriorly to C. populana Busck, C. flexiloqua Heinrich, C. garacana (Kearfott), and C. multilineata (Kearfott) but differs in genitalia. C. lacustrina resembles the western C. lautiuscula and the eastern C. gallaesaliciana, but differs from both these strikingly patterned species by its subdued forewing pattern and larger size (Miller, 1976).
