Pareumelea Warren

Type species: eugeniata Guenée

The forewing margins are rounded to angular, the hindwings with a somewhat crenulate margin with a slight angle at vein M3. The facies has a pale yellow ground colour, mostly suffused with grey or brown and speckled with dark brown; fasciae, when they occur, are irregular. The yellow ground colour is more or less unsullied at the margins and usually in a central submarginal patch on the forewing. The male abdomen shows two diagnostic features: modification of segment 8; possession of well-developed structures, a spur or a slender, sinuous arm, arising from the base of the valve costa in the genitalia. The female genitalia have a very large signum in the basal half of the bursa.
