10 pm. Marimatha nigrofimbria?

Marimatha tripuncta
Moved from Moths.

Marimatha tripuncta is the only Florida species with a visible postmedial line. The three dark spots are not always all visible. M. nigrofimbria never has postmedial line. (1)

Postmedial Line
This does appear to be tripuncta based on the "postmedial line deeply curved around position of reniform spot" (1), however, Ferris & Lafontaine (2010) also mentions that nigrofimbria can have a visible pm. line. There are examples of nigrofimbria from Tennessee at both BOLD and BugGuide with very well defined pm. line (confirmed by Don Lafontaine, pers. comm. 6/16/2019) but it is more evenly curved around the position of reniform spot.
