Egira dolosa

Often hard to identify. This is an early flying moth. The white stripe that runs from orbicular to orbicular (when the wings are closed) may be faint or even absent. The black/white colouration, and the white collar do not change.

Great description Ian.

Great pointers! I will have to watch for this one. I see that it does occur in NB, but sadly it has never chosen to visit me. I found only one reference to the larval food source, which is apparently quaking aspen. Perhaps I don't have that species in my area. I have loads of large toothed aspen though.
