Chorodna vulpinaria Moore, 1867
Can be confused with Chorodna vulpinaria male, but fascia is different with black line from below FW apex to base on inner margin not present in C. vulpinaria male. Also, the discal spots near the costa are different with the spot closer to the costa being almost linear in C. adumbrata, while it is circular in vulpinaria. On the HW, the medial in adumbrata is further away from the discal spot in adumbrata; closer in vulpinaria. The tails on HW margin are more produced in adumbrata. Smaller species than C. vulpinaria
