Taxonomy
Superfamily: Noctuoidea Family: ErebidaeSubfamily: AventiinaeP3 Number: 930692.00 MONA Number: 9025.00
Comments: Information based primarily on molecular data and/or genitalia indicate that the genus that this species currently is assigned to is misapplied, but the correct genus to which it should be assigned has not been determined by experts. The genus name is sometimes placed in quotation marks ("Oruza" albocostaliata) to indicate the misapplied name. This is one of two species in this genus that occur in North America (Lafontaine and Schmidt, 2010). It was moved from the Acontiinae to the Aventiinae by Holloway (2009; see Lafontaine and Schmidt, 2010).
