Cagiva cephalanthana  is a small (forewing length 4.0–4.7), rather dark species with a white to cream colored head, described from a series of specimens from Lake Charlotte, Texas. The forewing pattern is ill-defined, somewhat irregularly checkered with copper, pink, and reddish brown, with a darker brown to black median fascia ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1–10). I have examined specimens from Texas (USNM), Oklahoma (BDGU), Missouri (USNM), Indiana (MSC), Maryland (MSC), Rhode Island (MSC), and Mississippi (USNM). Specimens from Texas and Mississippi were reared from the seed pods of button-bush, Cephalanthus occidentalis  L. ( Rubiaceae  ). The specimens from Mississippi were collected as larvae in August and emerged in September; the specimens from Texas were collected as larvae in early September and emerged in late September and October. Field-collected adults were taken in July and August. It is assumed that there are two broods annually, with adults in July‒August and September‒October.
