Goniocraspedon micromistura sp. n.
6mm. The species resembles a small, dark mistura, redder, similarly fasciated, except the white antemedial and postmedial marks on the forewing costa are closer together. The male genitalia are much closer to those of mistura than are those of variegata, with a similar uncus, no transtilla blades, and a valve without processes. The rather angular, broad saccus is also similar. However, the valves are only slightly concave on their oblique distal margin, and the apex is more upcurved than that of mistura.
