Anarsia decora Li & Zheng, 1998: 124   ; Li, 2002: 232. TL: Yunnan, China.  

Diagnosis. This species is superficially similar to A. patulella Walker   , with similar forewing markings, but can be distinguished by the male genitalia with a long, narrow, strongly curved process in the left valva and the palmate scales with short stalks.

Male genitalia ( Figs. 8, 8a –b View FIGURES 7–8 ). The illustration of the male genitalia given by Li & Zheng (1998, Fig. 268) is a line-drawing and thus they are re-illustrated here with detailed photos. The phallus is flattened in the distal portion as shown in figure 8.
