Identification
Darker than disposita, longer-winged, and allied to that species in having a black basal dash, but more obscurely colored, dirty wood-brown. A black stain on submedian fold, where the median lines approximate, as in signosa. Terminally, the wing is twice stained with blackish. Spots and lines less distinctly limited than in disposita, and more as in petulea. Orbicular irregular, oblique. Reniform wide above. HW fuscous, with fine black terminal line and paler fringes. Beneath, the wings are paler, with distinct black distal spots, subirrorate; the under surface is much like disposita. There is a faint irregular line on HW, and the distal field of FW is shaded with fuscous. Thorax a little darker than FW. Abdomen dusky, with reduced tufts on the dorsum. Bull. U.S. Geol. & Geog. Surv. Terr. 5 : 202
