|scientific name Endothenia montanana |
Alberta records show that adults have been collected from late May to early July. Recorded specimens from the United States have been captured in early July and early August (Tortricid.net 2006).
Dark markings at the tip of the forewing are nearly obsolete (Heinrich 1926). Specimens recorded in Alberta often show this pale tip on the forewings, which contrasts with the much darker basal area. The contrast of light and dark colors on the forewings is helpful when comparing this species to Endothenia quadrimaculana, which tends to be similar in appearance.
There is not enough empirical data to warrant special conservation concerns.
The true extent of distribution is unknown. Records from Alberta come from Edmonton and Nordegg. In the United States specimens have been recorded in the state of Kentucky (Tortrcid.net 2006).
