Not sure why I thought this animal lives in our basin, but I'll leave it here while I investigate.

      Remarks: The type female for this species was collected at a light in Boulder, Colorado. Banks (1907a) wrote "One female from Colorado (Oslar) and two from Boulder, Colorado on August 9 (year not reported). Cockerell at light" (Weaver 1988). The only information available from the MCZC online collection is "Lectotype - female, Boulder, Colorado August 9 at light, T.D. A. Cockerell, No. 11692." No additional records for this species are known from the SPRB. Additionally, Herrmann et al. (1986) do not list records for L. stigma in Colorado or the basin.
