Similar Species: Platynota rostrana and P. flavedana are similar. The two species can be distinguished easily from each other by the scaling on the head - with a complex “hood” in rostrana, a simple one in flavedana - difficult to see well in photographs. See Platynota comparisons for larger photos and comparison with P. idaeusalis. ~ contributed by John Brown
