Superfamily: Sphingoidea, Dyar, 1902
Mr. Donald Bowman: "It seems the moth may be confined to the deciduous forest in Upper Green Gulch to Panther Pass summit. I have yet to find it in the Basin area but I believe it will be found there."
It is also reported in northeastern Mexico, but CATE indicates only a "questionable" presence in Mexico. Vadim Kroutov sends an image of a male from Hidalgo, Mexico.
The dark inner pm line of the forewing is quite convex.
