Description: This page serves as a placeholder for individuals that are possibly members of the genus Negosiana (which has improperly been treated as part of Prairiana for some time by certain sources). Until specimens are collected and identified, individuals that look like this (brown with dark brown to black mottling on the wings) will be placed here.

Comment: There are 5 known Negosiana species but very, very little information available online about this genus and these species outside of range. N. miliaris and negotiosa have been recorded from North Carolina; fraterna likely occurs here as well since it has been recorded north and south of NC. There are several collection records for N. fraterna from North Carolina but it is not clear if these specimens are correctly identified as the two species, according to drawings in a couple publications (Oman 1949; DeLong & Freytag 1972), have very similarly patterned and shaped heads and thoraxes.
