Subject(s):Deltoid Moths
P. lubricalis
wing description
Abstract:Similar to P. lubricalis, and probably heretofore mistaken for that common species. In size and color more like P. scobialis, but smaller. Color dull brownish black, with very little of the lustre of P. lubricalis T. a. line straight in its course, slightly wavy, black, preceded by a pale line; median shade forming a distinct black line, curved outward through the cell; t. p. line black, extending obliquely outward from the costa to subcostal vein, thence nearly straight to posterior margin, slightly dentate, followed by a pale line that is very fine except on costa, where it is quite prominent ; a subcostal pale line that is obscure except on the costa, a terminal black line cut with pale between the veins; fringe dusky. The pale part is paler than in P. lubricalis and less yellowish. Hind wings blackish, the basal portion pale, the lines of the fore wings, except the t. a., continuous across these but parallel to outer margin, the pale lines white and prominent ; discal spots of both wings obsolete. Under side gray, from a mixture of black and white scales, the lines of upper side, except the t. a., repeated. Head and thorax above solid brownish black, the tip of joint 3 of the palpi pale; abdomen concolorous with hind wings, annulate with pale.
