Lyclene obtusilinea sp. n.

Lyclene obtusilinea
(x 1.67)

10-11mm, 12-13mm. The facies is very similar to that of mesilaulinea, but more finely marked, the subbasal with only a subdorsal obtuse angle, running obliquely from it to the costa at about one-third. The male genitalia are similar to those of obscurilinea but the costal process of the valve is less produced and the saccular process is apically acute, more strongly upcurved. The vesica has a similar lateral bulge, but the groups of cornuti are more widely separated, the basal cornuti longer, the two more distal ones broader. The female genitalia are also similar, but there is stronger curvature and sclerotisation to the neck of the bursa.
