Schistophleps microfulvia sp. n.  


Schistophleps microfulvia (holotype)
(x. 1.63)


7-8mm. This and the next three species all have very similar forewing facies to fulvioides, though smaller, and can only reliably be identified by their distinctive male genitalia. This species occasionally has a brown zone on the dorsum medially (the specimens from Poring listed below). The aedeagus is relatively long, flexed subapically. The uncus has bifid and bilobed processes as in nigropuncta sp. n., but the bilobed process is relatively much broader. The valve apex is narrow, slightly spatulate, the valve broadening basally to this, with a small angle ventrally and a much broader, more basal one on the costa.
