|scientific name Grammia gibsoni |
common name Gibson's Tiger

Ranges from July 7 to August 20, with most records from late July to early August.
The absence of white markings along the forewing veins, broad transverse bands and long antennal pectinations distinguish members of this species complex. It is uncertain if Grammia geneura (Strecker), G. superba (Stretch), G. nevadensis (Grote & Robinson) and G. gibsoni (McDunnough) are all the same variable species, or if several species are involved.
