Stictane filiformis sp. n.  

Fig.9c: Stictane filiformis sp.n. holotype

5mm. The antennae are filiform. The forewing facies is distinctive, with the medial fascia relatively basal, an angled fascia through the discal dot and no submarginal row of dots. There are three dots on the margin distal to the discal dot and one near the tornus with a distinct gap of paler colour in between. In the genitalia the valves are shorter than in the three species just described, with only sparse setation distally. The saccular process is a short, triangular flap. There is a prominent furca, like the tongue of a reptile, extending dorsally from between the valve bases. The aedeagus vesica has several narrow diverticula, and three robust cornuti in its central portion.
