Identification
Field Guide Descriptions: Covell (1984); Beadle and Leckie (2012)Online Photographs: MPG, BugGuide, iNaturalist, Google, BAMONA, GBIF                                                                                 
Adult Markings: The costal and outer margins are slightly sinuous in the males and more so in the females; in Choristoneura parallela, in comparison, the costal margin is straight in the males and only slightly undulating in the females (Jason Dombroskie; see Bugguide). The forewings of males have a small costal fold located at the base of the antemedian line (Forbes, 1923). The ground color of the forewing is typically light wood brown, reticulated with distinct, nearly transverse, dark brown striae. The median and postmedian bands are clean-cut. Hindwings are cream in males, yellowish to orange in females, somewhat shaded with gray in both. In many of our specimens, as well as those illustrated on other websites, a blackish patch is located on the thorax (not mentioned by Forbes).
Wingspan: 20-28 mm (Forbes, 1923)
Adult ID Requirements: Identifiable from good quality photos of unworn specimens.
