Diagnosis: Grumichella aequiunguis   can be diagnosed by the following characters: 2 brown spots on male forewing; male genitalia bearing long, wide, rhomboid 2nd article of inferior appendage, with an excavate mesal surface, subequal in length to apicodorsal portion of 1st article; larval abdominal sternum I with 25–30 long setae. It is most similar to G. boraceia   sp. nov., but differs in having a pointed rather than blunt apex of the 2nd article of the inferior appendage, which is not excavate.

Adult: Head and body yellowish.

Male: Forewing length: 8–9 mm. Forewing light golden brown, with 2 small brown spots, 1 at midlength, 1 at apex of anal area (arculus). Abdominal segment IX annular; in dorsal view, with anterior margin nearly straight, posterior margin broadly rounded; pleural region sparsely setose; tergum IX without protuberances dorsally. Preanal appendage setose, at least 4× as long as wide; in lateral view, clavate, apex rounded. Segment X saddle-shaped; in lateral view not flattened, dorsal margin slightly concave, ventral margin abruptly convex; segment X in dorsal view, rectangular, with posterolateral borders well developed, lateral margins subparallel, with apicodorsal shelf, shelf almost rectangular, 1/3 as wide as apex of segment X, without
