korintjiensis Prout, 1928, Bull. Hill Mus. Witley,
The facies is very similar to that of pertendens, but the blackish brown markings are
generally more extensive and pronounced. However, the only reliable means of
distinguishing the species is on genitalia characters. In the male, the angle on
the ventral margin of the valve is shallower but more acute. The apical part of
the valve in pertendens is angled outwards, with a concave inner margin and
the apex almost acute, whereas in korintjiensis it
is flexed more gently outwards from a more basal position to a slightly
spatulate, rounded apex. The broader, basal part of the aedeagus vesica is
rather angular in korintjiensis
more irregular in pertendens.

preference. The species is infrequent but has been recorded in mostly
forested localities from the lowlands to 1790m.
