Adaina zephyria

Adaina zephyria is a moth of the Pterophoridae family. It is found in the United States (California), Mexico (Oaxaca), Peru (Huanaca), Venezuela, Bolivia, Costa Rica and Ecuador.

The wingspan is 14–17 mm. Adults are brownish white, but the head is slightly darker in front and above and pale between the antennae. These are dotted with brown above. The forewings have brown irroration (speckling), forming a vague spot in the middle of the cell. The hindwings and all fringes are almost the same color as the forewings. Adults are on wing from January to May and in September and October.
