ABSTRACT- The Old World tropical species, Simplicia cornicalis (Fabricius), is recorded for the first time from North America in the states of Florida and Louisiana. Autumn records are documented for captures since 2006 in central Florida and since 2008 in southern Louisiana. The species is known throughout Southeast and East Asia, from India to southern Japan, to Australia and New Guinea, as well as from Hawaii and the South Pacific islands, feeding mostly on dried plant leaves and plant debris, rotting seed pods, and particularly palm thatch. Rapid spread in the southeastern United States is likely, possibly also to Mexico and Central America.


its better to cite the journal title rather than the actual publisher, so in this case Lepidoptera Novae and not Scientific Publishers; not trying to nit-pick, just trying to keep these as uniform as possible :)

I'm a firm believer in consistency, particularly on guide pages
