Abstract

Nemophora chrysoprasias (Meyrick, 1907), previously known only by the type series from Assam, India, was discovered in the Yunnan Province of China. This study is the first to illustrate the male and female genitalia of N. chrysoprasias. Despite their differing appearances, this species is determined to be related to N. rubrofascia Christoph, 1882 based on their morphological characters and DNA barcode sequences.
