As in other Caripeta species, the broad dark median band is bordered with white, with a conspicuous white discal spot. Unlike other Caripeta, however, the dark forewing margin is two-toned, the dark rust-brown border shaded with speckled grey.
Life History The larvae are variably mottled brown and bumpy, closely resembling the conifer twigs on which they live. The pupa overwinters (Wagner et al. 2001). Adults are nocturnal and come to light. Conservation Not of concern. Diet Info Larvae strongly prefer pines (Pinus spp.), but occasionally feed on other conifers (Prentice 1963). Range BC to Newfoundland, south to NE and the Carolinas (McGuffin 1987, Wagner et al. 2001).
