Identification
The original description of Conchylodes concinnalis Hampson, is available online in the print references below. (1)
The black patch along the forewing costa has a white center compared to the solid patch in Conchylodes ovulalis. The space between the forewing postmedial line and the subterminal line is near equal the space between the subterminal line and terminal line. In Conchylodes ovulalis the subterminal line is much closer to the terminal line.
Specimen identified by DNA analysis (BOLD). (3)
Range
Southeastern United States north to at least Ohio; southern California and Arizona. (4), (2), (5), (6), (7)
Heppner (2003) listed the range as Florida to Texas, Georgia?; Mexico. (1)
