Coordinator notes: The HW veining varies from genus to genus, and is helpful in determining the genus. Pteronymia has a split upper HW cell with a small inward spike. All other features match "Cottyto" - including the narrowing of the thick FW bar, allowing for space between the adjacent white stripe. Also, the thickness of the wing edges match, including a narrowing near the bottom of the HW.
