SeasonalityAdults have been collected in Alberta during the last half of June IdentificationA medium-size (approx. 3.5 cm wingspan) moth with dull red-brown forewings and dirty white to light brown hindwings. The median areas and terminal area of the forewings are suffused with darker grey scales, especially along the veins, and this in combination with the absence of the normal lines creates a streaky appearance. The orbicular is indicated with a few white scales, and the reniform is slightly better marked as a thin incomplete vertical "bar" of white scales. The wing fringe is mostly black with a few white scales at each vein. The hindwings are dirty white in males and more or less suffused with light brown in females, with a thin dark terminal line and white fringe. Antennae of both sexes simple. The related C. videns is lighter brown, lacks the dark median streaking and thus looks much "cleaner". See also the smaller Xylomoia didonea.
