“Aquita” seria sp. n.
9mm. This species is
similar in general appearance to acontioides, but the marginal zone of
the forewing is very much paler and the costal markings are less extensive as
illustrated. The hindwing is a similar white to the forewing rather than being
lightly tinged brownish. The genitalia have the ductus bursae shorter distal to
the ductus seminalis than in
with more broadening and thickening of the basal section. The corpus bursae is
more spherical, with a large, rather globular and heavily spined basal signum
and two short, spined ones centrally rather than elongate bands.
