Similar Species:
  • The rectangular block along the dorsal margin is inherited independently from other forewing components and can be white, black, or rust brown. Walsingham recognized the polymorphism in 1879 and did not propose any synonyms. The adults live in reproductive diapause from May or June until early the following spring, when mating and oviposition occur. ~Jerry Powell
