Identification Covell, Moths of Eastern North America, Page 354. The forewings are gray, heavily mottled with darker gray and black but no brown. The forewing post-median line is wavy, but not as pronounced a bulge near the costa as the A. anacamptodes species, and not sharply bent on the hindwing. The discal spots are black. White and black abdominal bands are evident. The coastal species have heavier lines. Melanics are dark gray with obscure lines.
