Pangrapta viridentata sp. n.
23-24mm. This is a very similar species to hylaxalis, but has a more regular hindwing postmedial, and the dentate green band is also more regular and remains at approximately the same distance from the postmedial throughout, rather than converging with it at the centre. The dark band at the extreme margins is also less dentate basad. In the male genitalia the valves are more elongate, less lens-shaped, and the aedeagus vesica has a large but slender cornutus that is not seen in hylaxalis.
