Idaea bonifata is a moth in the family Geometridae. It is found in North America, where it has been recorded from Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Utah. The length of the forewings is 6–7 mm. Adults are on wing from March to October.
Idaea bonifata is VERY tiny and often overlooked, so I’m not surprised the range on MPG doesn’t have it there. Then again, the ranges on MPG are incomplete for many species, and over-representative for others.
