Broad-lined Catopyrrha
Erastria coloraria (Fabricius, 1798)

New York State Distribution [-]
Forbes (1948) states Trenton Falls and south, implying the species was once widespread in New York. This would be expected considering the distribution of the foodplant (New Jersey Tea) and the historical records for the Mottled Duskywing.

Global Distribution [-]
The current global distribution is uncertain. It formerly occurred in New England and New Jersey, and is currently found near Albany New York, southeastern Pennsylvania west to about Minnesota and south into Georgia and Texas. The species has disappeared in some other peripheral areas and it appears to have had very few occurrences in Kentucky and probably other places in the center of the range.
