syn. Agrotis austalea, Euxoa austalea, Euxoa melanoneura


Hawai'i Islands: Kaua'i, Hawai'i

local name: -

size: ca. 3,7 cm (wingspan)

Because specimens of this species were collected on the island of Hawai'i as well as on Kaua'i, it can be assumed that it also occured on the other islands, lying inbetween.

Unfortunately nothing more is known.
