Manoba gilletti sp. n.


Manoba gilletti

7-8mm. The forewing is greyer than in the previous few species, the typical punctate black fasciation being joined by a more general but faint black suffusion, particularly marginally, with the submarginal being rather irregular, with two stronger flecks near the centre. The valve of the male genitalia is relatively narrow, shaped somewhat as in
tribei. The harpe is obtusely angled, roughly diamond-shaped over its distal part. The aedeagus has an apical spur somewhat as in bulli but the vesica is very small and lacks cornuti.
