        C. Ferris record, AZ Cochise Co, Chirichahua Mts, S. Fk. Cave Creek Canyon on 14.vi.83. Ferris states "at least it appears to be that species as it looks like what I get here in Wyoming. I have one specimen from S. Fk. Cave Creek Canyon on 14.vi.83. I also have one April, 2001 specimen of the same moth from Grant Co., NM. I don't have specimens of 7638 C. anguilineata for comparison. I do have 7639, and the AZ moth is not that."
