Distributional area of Rhosus ovata on Inaturalist.

Rhosus ovata was first described by Rothschild 1896 as Pycnodontis ovata (https://archive.org/details/novitateszoologi03lond/page/98/mode/1up?view=theater). A synonym was published at the same year by Schaus 1896 by the name Rhosus unipuncta (https://archive.org/details/journalofnewyork41896newy/page/153/mode/1up?view=theater). Hampson 1910, who made the synonymization, transfered the species to the genus Rhosus (https://archive.org/details/catalogueoflepid09brituoft/page/414/mode/1up?view=theater).

To improve the knowledge of this species distribution, I compared Inaturalist observations with previously identified images of the species in the sites Inaturalist and leps.fieldguide (https://leps.fieldguide.ai/figures?category=59bb136c929d3d10ea9648e9). The search was made in the brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, Goiás, Espírito Santo, Bahia, Alagoas, Pernambuco, Piauí, Tocantins, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul and Distrito Federal; the argentinian provinces of Misiones, Corrientes, Entre Ríos, Santa Fe, Buenos Aires, Córdoba, La Pampa and Río Negro; and in the countries of Uruguay and Paraguay. Photos of adults previously identified at least in the family Noctuidae was checked. "Research grade" observations was excluded of the search.

It was found 17 observations of Rhosus ovata in the argentinian provinces of Buenos Aires, Corrientes and Misiones; Uruguay; and the brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná, São Paulo and Distrito Federal.
Another known locations of Rhosus ovata are the brazilian states of Bahia, type locality Rothschild 1896, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais from images of leps.fieldguide site.
