Description:

See Jason D. Roberts note in BugGuide on separating Pero honestaria, ancetaria, and morrisonia.

In addition, Jason D. Roberts (BugGuide, 2/15/2016) notes, "I have to add the small caveat that in just the last 1-2 years, identifying Pero specimens to species from photos has become quite murky, and without a physical examination or DNA, many, many IDs almost need an obligatory asterisk."

There are 72 records in the project database.

A Hubner's Pero Moth in Baltimore Co., Maryland (7/31/2014). Determined by Jason D. Roberts/BugGuide, who notes 'I have to add the small caveat that in just the last 1-2 years, identifying Pero specimens to species from photos has become quite murky, and without a physical examination or DNA, many, many IDs almost need an obligatory asterisk. That said, based on the appearance here and general criteria for visual distinction, it fits with ancetaria.' Photo by Emily Stanley. (MBP list)
