Remarks. This is a stem-miner on many genera of Leguminosae ( Papilionoideae  ), such as the cultivated Glycine  , Phaseolus  and Vigna  , the cover crops Centrosema  and Calopogonium  spp., etc. Larva has three opening bulbs on a short stalk of the posterior spiracle. The male genitalia are characteristic in the asymmetric form of basiphallic sclerites and the presence of a spinulose patch on lateral side of the distiphallic basal lobe. Other genitalic characters are as follows: surstylus with 15–17 spines in two irregular rows along the anterior margin of the projection; pre- and postgonites each strongly chitinized, the latter with a blunt serration along the ventral margin; phallapodeme 460 µ m long and phallus 330 µm long; ejaculatory apodeme 180 µm long and 70 µm wide.
