Eupithecia anticaria Walker (1862: 1241)  .

( Figs. 14–24View FIGURES 14 – 17View FIGURES 18 – 24)

Type locality: Nova Scotia, Canada.

Diagnosis and description by McDunnough, 1949: 672–673; pl. 31 figs. 23– 24 adult; text fig. 17 D male and female genitalia. Redescription by Bolte, 1990: 653–654; figs. 33 map; 123 male; 124 female; 191 a –b male antenna; 202 a –b female antenna; 212 i –j lateral view adult head; 221 c –d pupal terminal segment; 258 genitalia.

Discussion. This species is included so that comparisons can be made to E. nonanticaria  described subsequently. Adults ( Figs. 14–17View FIGURES 14 – 17), male genitalia ( Figs. 18–22View FIGURES 18 – 24), and female genitalia ( Figs. 23–24View FIGURES 18 – 24) are illustrated. Not illustrated in the male genitalia are the well-developed hairpencils and dorsoventrally bifid uncus. E. anticaria  occurs from eastern Newfoundland across Canada to western British Columbia, south to northern New Mexico and Apache and Coconino counties, Arizona, with adults from mid-May into July. Bolte (1990) placed anticaria  and graefi (Hulst) in his revised mutata group, while McDunnough (1949) included anticaria  in his undesignated species-group, but associated with graefi.
