Adults have been captured from late June through early August.
A medium-size (3.5-3.9 cm. wingspan) broad-winged pale tan (almost white) moth. There are no markings on the wings, hence the name. This moth looks more like a geometrid than a noctuid.
Other than the fact that adults are nocturnal and come to light, no information is available.
This species appears to be very uncommon in Alberta, where it is at the northern extremity of its range.
No information available.
This odd noctuid moth appears to be a species of the Great Basin and northern Great Plains. It occurs from at least California north and east across Montana to southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. In Alberta it has been collected north to Lethbridge and the Chauvin sandhills, east of Wainwright.
