Chrysocraspeda croceomarginata Warren, 1896, Novit. zool., 3: 370.

Chrysocraspeda croceomarginata
(x 1.33)

This and the next species, C. remutans Prout, are very similar, both sexes resembling the female of C. faganaria (below). C. croceomarginata is smaller, with the wings a greyer red that is less angled distally into the yellow margin, especially on the hindwing where the margin itself is less angled. The discal spots are more definite in C. remutans, white on the hindwing, blackish on the forewing. In the male genitalia C. croceomarginata has a narrower uncus and a shorter, rather tongue-like process at the apex of the aedeagus.
