Glyphidocera infulae   , new species

(Figs. 72–74, 311, Map 13)

Diagnosis.— Glyphidocera infulae   is similar to G. coronae   but differs in its possession of a wider gnathos, a nearly straight costal furca of the valva, a broader cucullus, and a larger apical cornutus of the aedeagal vesica.

Description.— Head: Scales of vertex and frontoclypeus brown tipped with pale brown; outer surface of labial palpus with brown scales tipped with pale brown, segment II with few pale­brown scales along distal margin; inner surface with segment I –II pale brown, segment III brown; scape of antenna brown, flagellum with alternating bands of pale­brown and brown scales; male 4 th flagellomere dorsally protuberant and curved, forming a deep concavity opposite slightly excavated flagellomeres 5–6; concavity nearly closed by a few setiform scales on apex of protuberance of 4 th flagellomere; proboscis brown.

Thorax: Tegula and mesonotum with brown scales tipped with pale brown. Legs with brown scales tipped with pale brown intermixed with pale­brown sales along apical margins of all segments and tarsomeres. Forewing (Fig. 311): Length 7.1 –9.0 mm (n = 13), brown intermixed with brown scales tipped with pale brown and few pale­brown scales; cell with 2 large, faint spots, 1 near middle, 1 near distal end. Undersurface brown. Hindwing: Brown.

Abdomen (Fig. 72): Male with 5 transverse, irregular rows of sex scales on intersegmental membrane between terga 2–3 and terga 3–4. Sex scales between terga 2–3 appear slightly larger than those sex scales between terga 3–4.

Male Genitalia (Figs. 73–74): Uncus elongate, slightly constricted above a wide base, parallelsided apically, gradually tapering to a narrowly rounded and setose apex; gnathos sparsely setose, protuberant, wide throughout length, apically upturned; tegumen slightly widened basally; dorsal strut of tegumen with arms convergent medially, fusing from posteroventral margin of tegumen to base of uncus; costa of valva shallowly emarginate from a shallow depression beyond a basal digitate process to a slightly raised subapical area; apical furca aristate, slightly upturned; sacculus twisted apically, constricting valva, slightly before middle, widening ventrodistally forming an elongate, broadly rounded cucullus; cucullus membranous and setose, with a short, slightly rounded outer margin; vesica of aedeagus with rounded denticles, bearing a large, crescent­shaped cornutus; cornutus dilated basally, exposing a hollow, basal cavity.

Female Genitalia: Unknown.
