Labanda concinna sp. n.


Labanda concinna

13-14mm. The facies and colour of the forewing are similar to those of the previous two species, as are the (not illustrated) male genitalia. However, the marginal zone of the forewing is less variegated, the pale submarginal line clearer, with a smoother inner dentation at one-third and two-thirds. The postmedial is more regular and has a shallowly obtuse angle over the anterior two-thirds, basal to the apex of which is a relatively large and round discal spot. The basal markings are similar to those of quadralis but the paler lines are clearer and more regular. The epithet concinna is a Warren manuscript name.
