SeasonalityFlies in June in Alberta (Bowman 1951). IdentificationThe adults are small, slender moths with a wingspan of 12-16 mm. The forewings are pale yellow, the hindwings gray (Davis 1978, Pellmyr 2000). Lampronia sublustris was described by Braun in 1923 (Braun 1923), and was subsequently placed in Tanysaccus by Davis (1978), but returned to Lampronia when Tanysaccus was found to be a synonym of Lampronia (Nielson and Davis 1985). Sublustris appears to be the same species as aenescens, since there are no distinguishing morphological traits, and the two are often found together (Pellmyr 2000).
