APB_Acontia dacia

Acontia dacia was formerly regarded to be an occasional pest of cotton across the southern US.

Another, once hyper-abundant, noctuid that fed on cotton, Alabama argillacea, appears to have been extirpated from the United States.  I am wondering if the same fate may await (or have already befallen) other cotton associates.

Is anyone still seeing this species?
