Cybilla hubbardana  is a poorly known species recorded from Arizona to western Texas. It was described from a small series of specimens from Tucson, Arizona reared from Koeberlinia spinosa  ( Koeberliniaceae  ) ( Busck 1907) (USNM). In general, the forewing of C. hubbardana  has a pale cream ground color faintly reticulated with gray specks and a variably defined (usually ill-defined), slightly darker gray median fascia ( Fig. 5, 6View FIGURES 1–10). Specimens from Texas (USNM) have the basal half slightly paler buff, creating a slightly two-toned appearance between the basal and distal halves, divided by the median fascia. The male and female genitalia ( Figs. 22View FIGURES 19–26, 36View FIGURES 33–38) are as described for the genus.

Reared specimens from Arizona eclosed primarily in May. Field collected specimens from Texas were collected in late May and early June.
