|scientific name Argyrotaenia repertana |
Unknown, possibly wet boreal habitats.

The forewing is greyish orange with darker reticulations. Broad slanted brown bands are present in the median and upper postmedian areas, along with a basal patch that is normally less distinct. The hindwing is greyish to brownish white. The head and thorax is concolourous with the forewing and the abdomen is light greyish brown.
This species could be confused with the much more common A. velutinana, however A. repertana is considerably larger and has a paler hindwing.
