A new species of underwing moth, Catocala aestivalia sp. nov., is described from northern Florida, USA. Genitalic and Cytochrome Oxidase Subunit I 5′ mitochondrial DNA characters differentiate C. aestivalia from related species with similar wing pattern and structure. In contrast to these other related Catocala species, C. aestivalia appears to specialize on Crataegus aestivalis growing in or near hydric hardwood forests along streams and rivers.
