Nola ovilla

Hello Fellow Leppers,

I am interested in how to separate Nola ovilla from N. clethrae. Forbes
states that the antennae of ovilla are fasiculate (characterized by bundles
of setae) while those of clethrae are bipectinate. My question is this: is
ovilla both fasciculate and bipectinate? The reason I ask is because an
early season specimen from last summer¹s work appears to show both

I was wondering if anyone knows the answer to this, or has access to a
collection and a scope and can look at a few for me?
