Eurhadina loewii


Length 4 to 4.7 mm. E. loewii is variable in colour, but often shows a striking dark arc on the forewing. 

Similar Species

If the pattern of dark markings on the wing veins is absent, the species can closely resemble Eurhadina concinna and E. ribauti.  In these instances, detailed examination, and possibly gen det for males may be necessary.

Identification difficulty
