Diagnosis. The combination of shining, copery golden forewing without fascia, large, apically angular inner lobe of valva, and specific set of four or three large spine-like cornuti in phallus distinguishes S. lobata  from all other Stigmella  species possessing one caudal process of gnathos in the male genitalia.
