Garudinia macrolatana sp. n.

Garudinia macrolatana
(holotype) (x 1.73)

7mm, possible 7-8mm. The facies is as in latana or pseudolatana, but the size is greater and the forewing ground colour a more creamy white. The hindwing in the male has a stronger grey-brown tinge to the margin. The male genitalia have the distal section of the saccular processes rather long, robust, slightly curved. The aedeagus is similar to that of bimaculata but there are no conspicuous apical spines, and the scobination of the vesica is very much finer. The probable females have the basal part of the corpus bursae filled with slender spines, and there is a rather flocculent, thickened zone at the sterigma.
