Sand-verbena Moth (Copablepharon Fuscum)

Summary of Status Report

Copablepharon fuscum has been recorded in three sites in Canada. It is confined to sparsely vegetated, sand-dominated coastal sites with large patches of its host-plant, Abronia latifolia. Habitat for both species is regionally rare and has declined because of vegetation stabilization, human development and other factors. A. latifolia, and by association, C. fuscum, appears to be declining because of habitat-related impacts. The rate of decline is likely accelerating.
