Parapellucens tegulatorii sp.
Pelluscens [sic] aphrasta Collenette sensu
Schintlmeister, 1994: 123.
The facies is very much as in aphrasta except the wings are a more opaque
white, with more elongate grey patches on the forewing, including additional
ones between the discal spot and the apex. The forewing is more triangular. The eighth tergite is unmodified and the genitalia generally
more elongate. The uncus is squarish, slightly tapering, the distal margin
notched. The valves are larger, terminating in a single, acute, inturned, darkly
sclerotised point. The saccus is long, tapering, the aedeagus also long,
distally serrate and with a scobinate vesica.
