Based on Hampson (1894), H. opheltesalis is separated from H. illectalis as under:
Hyalobathra illectalis is more fulvous, while opheltesalis is orange-yellow. Hyalobathra illectalis has a minutely waved submarginal line, which is obscure on opheltesalis. Hyalobathra illectalis has a black discocellular line which opheltesalis lacks.
