Bocula obscurostola sp. n.
15mm. The facies is very similar to that of xanthostola except the hindwing is a darker brown in the posterior zone that is paler in xanthostola, and the forewing discal spot is larger and more irregular, amid a generally more variegated and less ochreous pale brown ground area. The male genitalia are very similar to those of xanthostola, but the valve apex is broader and more falcate exteriorly; the eighth sternite of the abdomen is less deeply cleft.
