Diagnosis. This and the next species are very similar in facies, particularly the
females. Males of victoria have the oval patch of androconial scales on
the hindwing concolorous with the rest of the wing, whereas in oosyndica Prout
it is distally paler. The forewing postmedial of male victoria is finer,
more angular than that of oosyndica. The male genitalia are relatively
smaller, with the basal part of the juxta shallower, more triangular. The row of
spines in the aedeagus vesica has the spines larger, darker. In the female the
ductus bursae is significantly larger than the bursa, rather than equal in
length, the ostial funnel is broader, and the bursa is sausage-shaped rather
