Gasterocome polyspathes Prout, 1934 is separated from pannosaria as under: Gasterocome polyspathes has more ochre yellow tone, the black marking from cell to post-discal band is more or less continuous in pannosaria, but in polyspathes it is separated by a sinuous creamy-white line, which make the cell spot appear separate and disconnected.
