Name

Ogdoconta moreno Barnes, 1907Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Ogdoconta moreno Barnes 1907[1]: 96.

Type material

Ogdoconta moreno is based on an unspecified number of syntypes. There are currently two syntypes in the USNM bearing Barnes’ syntype labels, a male and a female. The male syntype bearing the locality “Baboquivera [sic] Mts., Pima Co., Ariz.” is labeled and hereby designated as Lectotype to ensure the stability of the name.

Diagnosis

Adults of Ogdoconta moreno vary from brown to gray. This species is not likely to be confused with any other species of Ogdoconta in North America. Both the reniform and orbicular spots of the forewing are represented by contrasting light patches devoid of any defining lines or spots. Orbicular spot touches the antemedial line. Antemedial line is angled with the outward apex occurring just below the orbicular spot. Inner side of the antemedial line is a light band followed by a darker brown line. Postmedial line is an almost straight, light line, followed by a light tan or gray region of the subterminal area, which gradually becomes darker in the subterminal area. Medial and terminal areas of the forewings of individual specimens, of both sexes, range from pale tan to dark smoky gray. Hind wing of both the male and female is whitish, suffused with dull gray brown, more heavily in the female than the male. Forewing length: 10.0–14.0 mm.
Cucullar part of the valve is ovate, elongate, and the outer margin is unmodified. Vesica loop varies from 180° to 360°. Vesica has a prominent curved diverticulum. Female genitalia are almost entirely membranous. Corpus bursae is elongate with a conspicuous signum that is concave and imbedded with minute denticles.

Distribution and biology

This species is known only from southern Arizona, although its distribution likely extends into Mexico. The larva and its food plants are unknown. Adults were collected in July, August, and September.
