Identification: Covell, Moths of Eastern North America, Page 380. The forewing is hooked at the apex. The color is orange-yellow with brown lines. The post-median line is the heaviest (note the sharp tooth at midpoint). The median area is shaded with pale brown, especially in the lower half, which is solid (not crossed by two fine lines, as in the Greater Grapevine Moth). The discal spots are small or absent. The caterpillar host plants are grapes and Virginia creeper.
