All these four species have a double triangular spot on the forewing costa and a double postmedial line on the forewing. They are best separated by examining specimens and/or genitalia. Named as the internella-analis complex as Nola internella (Walker, 1864) was the first of these species to be described and Nola analis (Wileman & West, 1928) is possibly the most widespread species.
