Garudinia macrolatana sp.
facies is as in latana or pseudolatana, but the size is greater
and the forewing ground colour a more creamy white. The hindwing in the male has
a stronger grey-brown tinge to the margin. The male genitalia have the distal
section of the saccular processes rather long, robust, slightly curved. The
aedeagus is similar to that of bimaculata but there are no conspicuous
apical spines, and the scobination of the vesica is very much finer. The
probable females have the basal part of the corpus bursae filled with slender
spines, and there is a rather flocculent, thickened zone at the sterigma.
