Heitzman's Dagger Acronicta heitzmani

Description

The following are remarks made about the photo in a Facebook thread way back in 2015 under my husband, Andrew Reago's, account.

images.peabody.yale.edu/lepsoc/jls/1990s/1992/1992-46(3)220-Covell.pdf

Me: Covell and Metzler write in the paper: "Black areas of the forewing in A. fragilis are replaced by olive gray in A. heitzmani, giving it a more uniform olive gray ground color. The scaling between the double antemedial and postmedial lines and in the suborbicular spot are gray in A. heitzmani rather than white as in A. fragilis." I did not get a photo of the hindwing, which is also different in the two species, gray with A. Heitzmani, white with gray shading in A. fragilis.

James Adams: "This is heitzmani and not fragilis by appearance. That's what I would call it."

Me: "... when Heitzman was alive (he died in 2013) he never found A. fragilis here in MO - only A. heitzmani. Interesting, eh? I think A. fragilis would be an even rarer find here than A. heitzmani."

Chris Jaeger: "Barcoding can't be relied on 100%. Has A. heitzmani been sequenced? because if not, then the sequence sharing a high degree of similarity or even being identical to A. fragilis means nothing. There are many species that have identical sequences in the barcode region. If both species have been barcoded and there are enough differences between sequences, then it could be reliable.

At the time that Bo's sequence was compared to other leps, there might not have been other Acronicta sequenced."

James Adams: "I have ONE heitzmani from NW Georgia, and that's it. Since the Acronicta MONA is in the pipeline, I would imagine that Chris Schmidt has probably barcoded true heitzmani."

Chris Schmidt: "Yup, [chrissy's] is definitely heitzmani; fragilis is in much more 'boreal' habitats, and is very rare and local even in southern Ontario, definitely does not make it into MO, but goes down the Appalachians. Barcodes "sort of" work for heitzmani vs. fragilis in that they cluster separately from fragilis but there is a divergent fragilis cluster that does not make sense geographically or taxonomically (likely ancestral polymorphism)."

Somewhat of a tentative ID. I think this individual looks good for this species generally, but would appreciate a second opinion.
