scientific name    Clepsis virescana    

Found in a variety of habitats, most common in shrubby open areas or aspen parkland.

Late June to mid August.

The forewing is olive-brown with darker olive brown markings. The median line is usually obscured in the middle of the wing, and the triangular patch on the costa just before the apex is usually very prominent. The hindwing varies from light grey to white. This species has a costal fold in the male, which coupled with the obscured median band, and olive-brown colour will separate it from C. peritana.

Not of concern.

diet info

From British Columbia to Newfoundland, south to California, Texas, and North Carolina.
