Explanation of Names
Author: Dyar, 1917
"As Dyar pointed out the dark intervenous line running from the end of the discal cell to the outer margin is usually lighter than the intervenous lines in the other cells, giving the impression of a pale ray running out from the cell. This is quite noticeable in lightly marked specimens, but is barely, if at all, distinguishable in darker, more heavily marked ones, especially if they are worn. X. linearella and X. lipan do not show this." Klots, 1970 (1)
