Note: Microloxia indecretata (Walker, [1863]) and Microloxia herbaria Hübner, 1808 are very similar species. 
http://www.herbulot.de/globalspecieslist.htm [accessed 07 November 2021] lists herbaria and indecretata as separate species, though some authors list indecretata as a subspecies of herbaria. While populations from S. and W. India are likely to be indecretata, N. Indian populations need validation by comparing genitalia and/or moleuclar phylogeny.
