Taxonomic note on four poorly known Arizona Eupithecia Curtis (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Eupitheciini)
By Clifford D. Ferris
Magnolia Press Zootaxa 738: 1–19, 2004

Adults and male and female genitalia of Eupithecia biedermanata and E. classicata are illustrated. The original descriptions and McDunnough’s subsequent generic revision did not provide complete information on these species because of the paucity of material available for study. Based upon their respective genitalic characters and otherwise similar morphologies, E. miamata is proposed to be a junior synonym of biedermanata, and penumbrata a junior synonym of classicata.
