scientific name    Digrammia subminiata    

common name     Vermillion Granite

Few data; a prairie species.

Adults fly from late May to late July.

Alberta specimens of this species lack the prominent dark AM and PM lines usually found in other populations; these are visible only as faint reddish-brown lines. The discal spot and submarginal area are the only dark areas on the forewing. The dorsal side, and in particular the ventral side, has a distinctive pinkish-red cast not found in other Digrammia species.

life history
Very little is known of this species biology, and the immature stages remain undescribed.

Apparently rare and local in Alberta's prairie badlands.

diet info
No information available.

A western species, occurring from southern BC to southern Manitoba, south to California, Kansas and Missouri (McGuffin 1972).
