anticlina sp. n.
15mm, 17mm. The forewings have three fine fasciae and a dark brown
marginal zone as in quadrilineata and bifaria.
However, the discal spot is obsolescent and the inner border of the marginal
zone is a smooth hump without any indentation, more as in divergens,
though shallower. The hindwings are darker in the female than the male, though
the latter does not have strongly modified scaling as in bifaria.
The male abdomen indicates no particularly close relationship to any species.
The eighth sternite is somewhat as in bifaria, but the tergite is broader, more robust
as in nigrinsula. the uncus is long and slender as in inconclusa
but the aedeagus is angled and does not have a ventral spur subbasally.
