Similiar species:
Imosca sugii Kobes, 1984.
Imosca sugii shown as separate species in Moths of Thailand, Vol 3, Part 2 but synonymized by Holloway in Moths of Borneo. Has a much broader costal dark mark, FW post-medial is more posteriorly oblique & there is a larger subtornal spot. The synonymy with I. sugii may need further study.
