Calymera nigridiscata sp. n.
16mm. The general coloration is as in
fratella, but the forewings have a more rounded apex and more distinct,
zig-zag antemedial and postmedial fasciae. There is a large but diffuse discal
black spot, with a small orbicular basal to it. The genitalia have an additional
lobe just distal to the costal process on an extension of its base. The aedeagus
has a relatively small vesica, particularly the distal diverticulum which lacks
apical cornuti. These only occur at the base of the ductus ejaculatorius.
