|scientific name Agriphila biarmica |
July to August.
A smallish crambid (19 mm wingspan). Fore wings blotchy dark brown, with whitish discal area; a zigzag subterminal line; and a row of seven black dots in the terminal line. North American material belongs to the subspecies paganella (McD.).
Uncommon, but probably of no concern.
The nominate subspecies occurs in Europe while the subspecies paganella is found in North America (McDunnough 1925). In Alberta, Bowman (1951) has it from the Nordegg area. It has also been found near Winfield and in Olds.
