Glaucoclystis sinuosoides sp. n.
7mm. In colour and general facies this species is like a small polyclealis
but with extensive mottled white between the postmedial and margin near the
dorsal half of the hindwing, more as in G. sinuosa Swinhoe comb. n.
(N.E. Himalaya). The spiralling of the basal narrow part of the bursa has only
one twist in the new species, but is very much larger with several twists in sinuosa.
