Mudaria luteileprosa sp. n.

Mudaria luteileprosa

23mm, 24-25mm. The facies is as in the forms of magniplaga with pale patches but the species is larger, the leprous patches diagnostically yellowed centrally. The central patch is somewhat rounder than in magniplaga, with a small posterior indentation. In the male abdomen there are weak elliptical zones on tergites 4-7 as in major, but the uncus is tapering rather than oblong, and the harpe processes, though similar, are set closer together, the angular one of major rounded in luteileprosa.
