scientific name    Clepsis kearfotti    

Probably subalpine or alpine.

The single specimen was collected on August 17. (Obraztsov 1962)

The forewing is light grey with obscure darker grey bands in the basal and median areas and a partial one that is triangular from the subterminal area of the costa to the middle of the outer margin. The hindwing is pale grey with a fine white line at the base of the fringe. (Obraztsov 1962)

Only known from the single holotype specimen from Mt. Piran, Alberta. (Obraztsov 1962)

This may just be a dark form of C. fucana. (Razowski 1979)
