Copitarsia decolora (Guenée, 1852)

This moth is found in South and Central America, north up to Mexico. It is of quarantine concern in North America because it attacks a large variety of crops like brassicas, ornamentals or field crops (onions, potatoes, etc.).

For a taxonomic review see Simmons and Pogue, 2004.
