Moved from Ozarba.

Ozarba new sp.
BOLD DNA Analysis Barcode ID CMAZA532-10.

Moved from Moths.

Possibly Ozarba aeria 9030

must be 9030 - Ozarba aeria
9031 - Ozarba propera is the other species listed for Arizona and we can rule that out. O. fannia is synonym of aeria now.
Interesting how the double PM line on this individual takes a sharper than average angle towards the base as it nears the inner margin. Not so much in other photos I have seen.
Nice photo!

Ozarba Status Unknown at Present
Don Lafontaine and Chris Schmidt are investigating the complex that includes forms in West Texas and Arizona. Don says that this moth looks more like the W. TX form (which could be a new species) than the possible new species in Arizona, but DNA from Charles' specimen will aid the investigation.
