|scientific name Pyrausta borealis |
Mid May to mid July.
Ground color of both fore and hind wings above fulvous brown with dull yellowish-buff PM and ST lines. Wingspan 14-18 mm. Very close to Pyrausta subsequalis plagialis but the wings are somewhat duller and it has a more northern distribution. Regarded as Pyrausta subsequalis borealis in Hodges et al. (1983), but Munroe (1976) comments "Forbes, in my opinion correctly, considered it a 'northern' variety". No genitalic differences between the two are mentioned by Munroe (1976).
Unknown, Adults come to light.
Of no concern.
Unknown. The larvae may possibly feed on a species of mint.
