Note: Britha biguttata Walker,  males are easily identified as biguttata male has traces of the longitudinal pale patch at one third from the dorsum in the centre of the wing. Male biguttata has pectinnate antennae, while female lacks pectinations. Given that no male of biguttata has been recorded on MOI so far, we believe that all the females on this page are likely to be pactalis but can be either biguttata or pactalis, but this is difficult to ascertain with certainty. Hence this page, which was earlier listed as Britha biguttata Walker,  is now changed to Britha spp.
