Bocula hedleyi sp. n.
, 14-16mm. Both sexes resemble somewhat females of sejuncta Walker, the males lacking the hindwing modification described above. The submarginal line, however, is entire, linear, rather than more irregular and punctate. The rest of the wing is also more clearly delineated by fine, pale, slightly undulating fasciae. The male genitalia have a narrower uncus, more tapering valve apex, different ornamentation on the ventral part of the valve sacculus, and a much smaller aedeagus and vesica, the latter less convolute.
