Cania styx sp. n.
Both forewings and hindwings are very dark brown apart from a medium brown zone
at the base of the forewing that tapers away along the dorsum. In the genitalia
the aedeagus is as in guichardi but the two processes of the uncus are
very much shorter than in the other two species, with an interior 'step' on
either side of a central circular notch; the furca is relatively as long as in bandura.
The female mentioned above for guichardi could equally well be
that of styx.
