Carbia calefacta Prout, partim (see above).
9-10mm. This is a smaller species than calefacta, with narrower,
browner forewings, the basal zone being less fasciated with white, the
antemedial meeting the dorsum more obliquely at its point of contact. The
hindwings are also browner, duller. The genitalia have the spines in the bursa
more even in size than in calefacta (where they are smaller on one side)
and not extending as far into the short neck.
