BOLD Systems DNA analysis
Glaucina nephos
Barcode ID CMAZA326-10.

Your example is in BOLD:AAH5381 which contains five G. interruptaria and four nephos. There are 5 species in this group. I only see 3 BIN groups at BOLD but they contain all five. There is also a G. nephos in BOLD:AAF9479 which additionally contains G. interruptaria, platia, and spaldingata. The other BIN, BOLD:ACI3804, contains G. gonia and platia. It seems that the BOLD IDs need to be regarded as very tentative.

Moved from Moths.

Looks Pretty Much the Same as the One We Called.....
6518.97 - Glaucina spp. I think anything in this genus will require DNA (or genitalia) for identification. (no rsvp, thanks)
