Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera coturnicis  , G. l u x u r i a e, and G. ambrosiae  share sex scales between abdominal terga 2–3 in the male, a dorsal strut of tegumen wide basally, a valval cucullus with a broadly rounded apicoventral margin, and costal furcae of valva divergent. However, G. coturnicis  differs from the latter two species by having straight costal furcae of the valva and an elongate and narrow cornutus of the aedeagal vesica.

Description.— Head: Scales of vertex and frontoclypeus brown tipped with pale brown; outer surface of labial palpus dark brown or brown intermixed with pale­brown scales to apical margin of segment II, inner surface pale brown intermixed with few brown scales; scape of antenna brown intermixed with few pale­brown scales, flagellum with alternating bands of brown and pale­brown scales; male 4 th flagellomere not protuberant, 5 th and 6 th flagellomeres slightly excavated; proboscis brown.

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum with brown scales tipped with pale brown. Legs brown intermixed with pale­brown scales to apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres. Forewing (Fig. 366): Length 5.0– 6.1 mm (n = 16), pale brown intermixed with brown scales; one short, dark­brown median streak near base; cell with 2 large, dark­brown oblique spots, 1 spot near middle, 1 spot near distal end [rubbed specimens with spots faint or missing]. Undersurface brown intermixed with pale­brown scales along costa. Hindwing: Pale brown.

Abdomen (Fig. 237): Male with 3 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 238–239): Uncus elongate, wide at base, broadly constricted near ½, widely rounded apically, apex narrowly rounded and setose; gnathos setose, protuberant, wide throughout length, apically upturned; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent, fusing near 2 / 3 length, extending dorsally to base of uncus; costa of valva nearly straight from a shallow depression beyond a slanted, basal, digitate process to a slightly upturned dorsal furca; apex widely bifurcate; furcae widely divergent, dorsal furca longer than ventral furca; sacculus twisted apically near midlength, widening distoventrally, forming a broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose; vesica of aedeagus denticulate, bearing an elongate and narrow, apical cornutus; cornutus with one side shortened near 1 / 3 length, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia: Unknown.
