Hodges Number
Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Anopina eleonora Obraztsov, 1962 (1)
Explanation of Names
Specific epithet would seem to be a female given name with the Polish spelling, Obraztsov's nationality. He makes no mention in his description, however.
Forewing length 7-8 mm. (1)
Adult - grey with well-defined, dark basal and costal patches. (2)
Holotype male: Alpine, Arizona, June 6, 1937 (J.F. Gates Clarke); allotype female, Greer, Arizona, June 8, 1937 (J.F. Gates Clarke). (1)
Adults fly in the dry season, April to early June. (2)
Larvae suspected to be leaf-litter feeders on the ground. Powell & Opler (2009) found them in association with Arctostaphylis and Ceanothus and test fed them. The larvae fed on old, decaying, dry Prunus leaves, avoiding fresh ones. (2)
Powell & Opler (2009) collected none at lights, all diurnally, flushed from Arctostaphylis and Ceanothus. (2)
See Also
This new species resembles somewhat the Mexican parasema Walsingham, but lacks the color richness of that species, being uniformly grayish white, with dark brown markings on the forewings. The external portion of the forewings is not deeply darkened, and the cilia are pale. (1)
