Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera rodriguezi  is similar to G. a e d i s but differs by having a longer apical furca of the valval costa and a narrower distal part of the valva.

Description.— Head (Fig. 2): Scales of vertex and frontoclypeus brown tipped with pale brown; outer surface of labial palpus brown intermixed with few pale­brown scales, segment II with pale­brown scales along apical margin; inner surface pale brown intermixed with brown scales; scape of antenna brown intermixed with few pale­brown scales, flagellum with alternating bands of brown and pale­brown scales; male 4 th flagellomere dorsally protuberant and curved, forming a deep concavity opposite slightly excavated flagellomeres 5–6; concavity nearly closed by a few setiform scales on apex of protuberance of 4 th flagellomere; proboscis brown.

Thorax: Scales of tegula and mesonotum brown tipped with pale brown. Legs with brown scales tipped with pale brown and pale­brown scales along apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres. Forewing (Fig. 307): Length 7.7–9.1 mm (n = 53), Scales brown tipped with pale brown; distal 1 / 3 slightly darker than basal 2 / 3; cell with 2 large brown spots, 1 near middle, 1 near distal end. Undersurface brown. Hindwing: Grayish brown.

Abdomen (Fig. 60): Male with 4 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental area between terga 2–3 and terga 3–4. Sex scales between terga 2–3 appear slightly larger than the sex scales between terga 3–4.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 61–62): Uncus elongate, slightly constricted above a widened base, apically widened to an acuminate and sparsely setose apex; gnathos protuberant, wide throughout length, apically upturned; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent from a widened base, fusing midway between posteroventral margin of tegumen to base of uncus; costa of valva nearly straight from a shallow depression beyond a slanted, basal digitate process to apical furca; furca acuminate, slightly excavated dorsally; sacculus twisted apically, constricting valva near midlength, dilated distoventrally, forming an elongate and broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose, with short, nearly truncate outer margin; vesica of aedeagus denticulate, bearing a large, crescent­shaped, apical cornutus; cornutus slightly shortened on one side, exposing a large, hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia: Unknown.
