Diagnosis. Forewing length is 11.5–12.5 mm in males and 12.5–13 mm in females. Barsine inflexa   is very similar externally to B. victoria   , but can be distinguished by its slightly broader forewing, broader transverse lines and broader blackish brown edge of the costal margin. The male genitalia of B. inflexa   differ from those of B. victoria   by their uncus being extremely broadened, discoid basal section of the uncus, larger distal costal process of valva situated dorsally, narrower medial costal process, slightly smaller distal saccular process, slightly longer aedeagus, the absence of a cluster of cornuti on the subbasal diverticulum, the absence of a ventral medial diverticulum, and larger distal diverticulum. The female genitalia of B. inflexa   differ from those of B. victoria   by their stronger spinulose scobination of corpus bursae and much longer appendix bursae.

Distribution. Himalaya: North East India ( Hampson 1900; Arora & Chaudhuri 1982; Singh et al. 2014) and East Nepal.
