Type species: mystica
This genus is proposed
for a single species that has been associated with Idiochlora, but does
not share the diagnostic features of that genus.
The male antennae are
broadly bipectinate, the pectinations regular, tapering away to about two-thirds
of the way along the shaft. Those of the female are ciliate. The forewing margin
is relatively straight, that of the hindwing only slightly angled centrally. The
fringes and fine, straight fasciae are very pale yellow. The underside is
In the male abdomen
there are no setae on the third sternite. In the genitalia the socii are short
relative to the uncus, and the valve has a short, rather spatulate extension to
the sacculus. There are small coremata. These genitalia features are seen in the
Rhomboristiti with the exception of coremata.
In the female genitalia
the ovipositor lobes are of the modified type. The ductus is relatively long,
the bursa elliptical, with a weak signum.
