Explanation of Names
Marasmia cochrusalis (Walker, 1859), placed by some authors in the genus Cnaphalocrocis, is treated as a member of the genus Marasmia in Shaffer & Munroe (2003:63).
FW middle portion of st. line or shade is narrowly separated from the pm. line. The HW pm. and st. lines tend to be more narrowly separated than in trapezalis with pm. line bending more toward the apex. The HW pm. line tends to align with the FW st. line in cochrusalis and with the pm. line in trapezalis.
Type locality: Dominican Republic, St. Domingo
