Lyclene postseriata (holotype)
(x 1.67)

9-10mm. The forewing facies is similar to that of apiseriata except the central fascia is more distant from the discal mark. The hindwing is distinguished by a series of faint submarginal streaks. The male genitalia are bilaterally symmetrical, the saccular process distally straight and extending beyond the costal one. The valve costa has a distinct bulge at one-third. The vesica cornuti are well separated (adjacent in biseriata and allies), the more distal one very broad subbasally.
