scientific name    Haploa lecontei    

common name     Leconte's Haploa

Mixed wood boreal forest and riparian woodland in the prairie region.

Mid to late July in the north, late June to mid July in the prairies.

The extent of the black forewing markings is variable. Specimens from the prairie region tend to have reduced black markings in the basal half of the forewing. Haploa confusa (Lyman), which occurs in eastern North America west to Saskatchewan, may eventually be found in Alberta. This species has slight differences in forewing maculation: the antemedial white patch is two-lobed at the distal end (confusa), as opposed to elliptical (lecontei). H. confusa should be watched for in the east-central part of the province.
