Chloroplaga Hampson

Type species: nygmia Swinhoe, Singapore.

The facie
s is distinctive, the forewing with a hook-like green mark medially on a variegated fawn or grey brown ground, and the hindwing dull yellow with wavy dark greyish brown fasciae and border.

In the male abdomen, the eighth segment and the genitalia are similar to those of Clethrophora, though the former lacks coremata and the latter have a more expanded distal part of the valve, and there is a subbasal process on its costa.

In the female, the ovipositor lobes are as in Clethrophora but the ductus though slender, is not as long, and the bursa is more pyriform and only very slightly scobinate throughout.

The genus contains the species discussed below.
