Individual(s) Observed (seen)
Reported as "Synedoida stretchii (Behr)" in the family Noctuidae. Horning used black light (U70HOR01IDUS). Todd Stefanic, NPS, points out that most literature now puts the genus Drasteria in the family Erebidae (N17STE01IDUS).
Decimal Degrees: 43.4,-113.5
Open area, ca 300 yds W of the disposal dump, at summit of a small S-facing knoll subjected to high wind velocities from the SW. Shrubs usually associated with older cinder cones are present. The soil and plant composition of this station is much the same as at Station 3, except Balsamorhiza sagittata is not present and there are dense stands of Elymus (Leymus) condensatus with scattered Oryzopsis hymenoides. Water from a constantly dripping faucet just S of this station attracted many insects (Horning and Barr 1970).
Game Management Unit:
July 5, 1965 (All day) to July 14, 1965 (All day)
Though U70HOR01IDUS provides month and day, the year was not shown and could have been 1964, 1965, or 1967, but "most of the field collections and observations" were "made in 1965," so that year is used here.
