Stathmopoda auriferella (=crocophanes)

Stathmopoda auriferella
NOTE: The synonymy of S. crocophanes remains uncertain. Based on genitalia characters Kasy (1973) treated two Australian species, S. ischnotis and S. crocophanes, along with a few Oriental species as junior synonyms of S. auriferella, a West African species. This synonymy appears largely accepted overseas but has not been followed by local faunal directories such as the Autralian Faunal Directory (AFD).
