The Double-lined Prominent may be brown, gray, or tan. Regardless of general color, the wings have a pair of lines that separate it into three parts. These twin lines are close together and are slightly scalloped. A vague reniform spot sits on the forewings.
Green caterpillars have pale yellow lines on either side of the body with red or brown spots between them. Look for this moth during the summer months in forests and woodlands where oak, birch, elm, beech, and walnut trees grow.

* MAP NOTES: The territorial heat map above showcases (in red) the states and territories of North America where the Double-lined Prominent may be found (but is not limited to). This sort of data is useful when attempting to see concentrations of particular species across the continent as well as revealing possible migratory patterns over a species' given lifespan. Some insects are naturally confined by environment, weather, mating habits, food resources and the like while others see widespread expansion across most, or all, of North America. States/Territories shown above are a general indicator of areas inhabited by the Double-lined Prominent. Insects generally go where they please, typically driven by diet, environmental changes, and / or mating habits.
