Abstract
A new species of underwing moth, Catocala myristica sp. nov., is described from the southeastern United States. Wing pattern, genitalic and Cytochrome Oxidase Subunit I 5′ mitochondrial DNA characters separate C. myristica from phenotypically similar species in the genus. The new species occurs in the Black Belt ecological region in close association with nutmeg hickory, Carya myristiciformis.
