Torodora sirtalis Wu, 1997: 77 . TL: Yunan, China.

Diagnosis. Wingspan 18.0–19.0 mm. Torodora sirtalis is the largest species among those with a similar forewing pattern. It is similar to T. sortilega (Meyrick) , but it can be distinguished from the latter by the wider aedeagus and the uncus widened apically. The species was described, based on a single male and its female is unknown.
