The larva of Aplectoides condita Guenée (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) is described and illustrated. Larix laricina (Du Roi) Koch was found to be an acceptable host. The species is univoltine and normally overwinters as a larva in a cocoon. An unusual adult form of condita is illustrated. The larva of condita is compared to that of Anaplectoides pressus (Grote). Larix laricina, Sambucus canadensis L., Salix gracilis Anderss., Vicia cracca L., Betula papyrifera Marsh and Alnus rugosa Du Roi, represent new host records for pressus.
