Nola fisheri

7mm. This species is of a similar forewing facies and male genitalia type to marginata and exumbrata Inoue (Ryukyu Is. (Okinawa)), but the pale forewing submarginal has a much more strongly angular course. The male genitalia have a short harpe, notched on one side subapically, and the ventral arm of the valve has only a small apical spine. The aedeagus vesica has a narrow, elongate diverticulum that terminates in two equal curved spines (numerous in marginata; one much longer one with a few small ones in exumbrata).
