Discussion. This primarily Neotropical species is also known from California, Florida, Nevada and Texas and is unusual among New World Bezzia   in that its wing has large, distinct, dark gray maculations. Wilkening et al. (1985) listed it in Florida from Dade and Palm Beach counties. We provide the first record from Alachua Co.
