This species is similar to L. botosaneanui , L. chiriquiensis , and L. viridis , based on characteristics of the phallus, as discussed under L. botosaneanui . Leucotrichia hispida can be recognized using the tuft of setae on the posteroventral projection of sternum VIII and the lack of any external spines or sclerites on the apex of phallus.
