Similar species: Bastilla praetermissa (Warren, 1913)
Bastilla praetermissa and B. crameri are distinguished from each other by the presence or absence of the small black point in cell respectively. Hacker & Weigert (1990: 270) stated that the two forms occurred in praetermissa from India and Myanmar, and that the specific analysis should be re-examined. I think that another and more stable discriminative character is in the running pattern of the postmedian line: a little strongly curved in crameri and rather straight in praetermissa (Haruta, 1993).
