Taxonomic Notes: Diaphania modialis (Dyar, 1912), originally described as a subspecies of 5206 Diaphania infimalis (Guenée, 1854) was apparently first treated as a full species in Kimball (1965), p. 209. It is unclear as to whether modialis was ever formally elevated to species and some authors treat it as a subspecies of Diaphania infimalis.
Photographs are needed for this species.
