Nola tarrawayi sp. n.


Nola tarrawayi

7mm. The facies of the forewing is somewhat similar to that of internella but is marked blackish on satiny white. The double postmedial is more clearly defined, the outer component distinctly punctate. There are tongues of pale grey raised scales from the costa medially and antemedially, the latter giving rise to a fine, zig-zag, black fascia running to the dorsum, bidentate distad (unidentate in
internella), broader and more diffuse. The genitalia are atypical, with the dorsal arm of the valve very narrow and the ventral one broad, the distal border oblique,with a broad marginal field of basally directed hair-setae. The harpe is rather robust, set interiorly and basal to the setal field. The aedeagus vesica is elongate, with a single curved cornutus near the base.
