Manoba bulli sp. n.
6-7mm. The forewing facies is more punctate than in
broad markings being restricted to a subbasal streak and a medial triangle on
the costa. The valve is unusually shaped from the sinuous margins of both costa
and the distal part of the ventral margin. The harpe is large, rather jug-like,
but with an acute apex like the lip. The aedeagus has a thumb-like subapical
spur, and there is a pronounced comb of spines on the aedeagus vesica.
