The species is very similar to R. vibicaria   , it can be distinguished by the following characters: the ground colour is densely scattered with reddish brown or grey scales in R. serraginaria   , but is homogenous in R. vibicaria   ; the shape of the forewing is narrower and more elongate than that in R. vibicaria   ; in the male genitalia, the distal lobe of the aedeagus is curved and slightly directed outward in R. serraginaria   , but obviously directed outward and broader in R. vibicaria   ; the everted vesical is less rounded and smaller in R. serraginaria   ; in the female genitalia, the ductus bursae is bent in lthe ateral view and narrower in R. serraginaria   while it is straight and broader in R. vibicaria   ; the corpus bursae is much smaller in R. serraginaria ( Kaila & Viidalepp 1996)   .
