Abstract

A new species of underwing moth, Catocala bastropi sp. nov., is described from Texas and Louisiana, USA. Wing pattern, genitalic and cytochrome oxidase subunit I 5′ mitochondrial DNA characters separate C. bastropi from phenotypically similar and closely related species. The new species occurs in xeric uplands from western Louisiana to the Bastrop Lost Pines ecoregion in Bastrop County, Texas, north to Ste. Genevieve County, Missouri, USA. Also evaluated here is a distinctive wing pattern phenotype with forewings resembling C. andromedae but with yellow-banded hind wings.
