CATOCALA CEROGAMA
YELLOW-BANDED UNDERWING

Catocala cerogama, the yellow-banded underwing, is a moth of the tribe Catocalini that occurs in North America. The species was first described by Achille Guenée in 1852.

The wingspan is 64 to 81 mm. They have even, deep yellow bands on their hindwings, the forewings are usually brownish gray. Look for a pale band that connects the whitish subreniform a spot to the costa.

The adults fly between July and October.

Distribution: As far north as Nova Scotia south to North Carolina, west to Manitoba, South Dakota, and Missouri.

Underwing moths are named after their brightly coloured and boldly patterned hindwings which contrast with the bark-like pattern of the forewings. These moths are in the genus Catocala which is part of the owlet moth family (Noctuidea).
