Peratophyga alluvialis (holotype)
12-13mm. The bands on both wings are narrower than either of the
previous two species and of rufous tinge as in beta. In the male
genitalia the lateral processes to the tegumen are very slender and the lower
portions of the right valve is distinctly narrowed over the apical portion from
the ventral margin. The secondary spines on the side of the cornutus adjacent to
the vesica are largest over the central part; in trigonata the larger
ones are more distal.
