Four-spotted angle moth
Habitat is a reclaimed strip mine. Observation of this adult was perhaps 100 m from an area of bristly locust (Robinia hispida), the likely larval hostplant, that was planted during mine reclamation. H. infulata is known to feed on R. hispida (Ferguson 2008).
Ferguson, 2008; The Moths of America North of Mexico, 17.2; GEOMETROIDEA; Geometridae (Part); Ennominae (Part - Abraxini, Cassymini, Macariini)
The Macariini are a tribe of geometer moths in the Ennominae subfamily. Though they share many traits with the Sterrhinae, this is probably plesiomorphic rather than indicative of a close relationship, and DNA sequence data points to the Boarmiini as particularly close relatives of the Macariini. All things considered, this tribe might still resemble the very first Ennominae more than any other living lineage in the subfamily.
