4207771881Neotelphusa sequax (Haworth, 1828) – Crepuscular Rock-rose Moth
  • Neotelphusa sequax (Haworth, 1828), n. comb., is transferred from the genus Teleiodes, Lee & Brown (2008), Zootaxa, 1818: 36. This species was apparently first added to the NA checklist in Zeller (1873). Based on the scarcity of verified records and the historic absence of the know host plant, its status in North America is unclear.
  • Barcode of Life (BOLD) - Caution: Some specimens shown may not be sequenced. DNA barcode provides evidence of relatedness not proof of identification.
