Type species: glandulosa Felder =atrosquama Walker,
The facies of this genus typically includes some oblique fasciation on
the forewing, more intense towards the dorsum, but the diagnostic features are
again in the male genitalia.
The male abdomen has tymbals. The uncus is represented by two spines or
lobes. The valves are short, deep, with variable separation of a narrower dorsal
part from the rest. The saccus is broad and deep. The aedeagus vesica is
ornamented with irregular fields of spines that are directed basad.
The female genitalia have the ductus basally sclerotised and distally
thickened much as in Bembina, but the sclerotised basal part broadens to
the ostium. The bursa lacks a signum.
The genus is currently restricted to the type species and those
described below. Kishida (1993: fig 221) illustrated the genitalia of a Nepalese
species, his Euproctis species 7, that may also be a Choerotricha.
