Oglasa muluensis sp. n. 
13mm. This species is very similar in facies to lagusalis but has a darker ground to the forewing and a broader, less oblique triangle at one third on the costa. The hindwings are also a much darker brownish grey. The male genitalia have the valve apex rounded rather than acute, with the ventral margin of the apex more strongly curved so that the broadest part of the valve is more distal than in lagusalis. The dorsal flap to the oblique pleat is more elongate, deeper towards the base of the valve. See also the next species, where this flap is shorter, but similarly rounded at its broadest point.
