SeasonalityAdults have been collected in Alberta in late August and early September. IdentificationEuxoa teleboa belongs to the detersa group of the subgenus Euxoa. They are medium-size moths (3.0-3.3 cm wingspan) with rusty-orange or yellow-buff forewings crossed by a wide black median band. The hindwings are shining white with a small dark discal crescent. The normal lines are indistinct or absent in most specimens, and the orbicular is reduced to a dark spot. The remainders of the forewings are dusted with scattered grey scales, in particular in the terminal area. E. teleboa can be separated from the similar E. tronella by the prominent wide median band, and from E. setonia by the yellow-brown or rusty orange color (brown in setonia).
