The grapeleaf skeletonizer is a moth in the family Zygaenidae. It is widespread in the eastern half of the United States, and commonly noticed defoliating grapes, especially of the Virginia creeper . The western grapeleaf skeletonizer is very similar to and slightly larger than ''H. americana,'' but their distributions are different.
