Eois willotti sp. n.
9, 10mm. The wings are a yellow typical of Eois but they are
strongly fasciated, rather irregularly, with red, more as in some Pomasia species.
On the forewing particularly the fasciae come mainly in pairs, three in all. The
genitalia, however, are typical of subgenus Bardanes in Eois. The
signum and opposing secondary spining are more robust than in sundasimilis, but
the general sclerotisation does not extend so far distally within the bursa.
