Phaneta formosana species group

Hodges #s 2910, 2911, 2913, 2915 etc.

This group includes a number of species – Phaneta essexana, formosana, awemeana, umbrastriana and others.  All these species are similar in appearance, and quite variable in coloration.  They probably can’t be told apart from photographs.  (Gilligan, Wright and Gibson)  [Thanks to Merrill Lynch for sharing this information.]
