Notes from Dey & Hausmann (2021): Further research is required to clarify distribution and species delimitation of the species pair Cidaria basharica and C. antauges Prout, 1938, the latter described from Kashmir/Kokser. Wing pattern of our record from Uttarakhand is well matching the figure for a Nepalese specimen in Yazaki (2000), whilst the type of C. basharica shows a much narrower medial area. It is not excluded that the populations of Uttarakhand and Nepal belong to C. antauges.
