Remarks
Aulacodes cf. aechmialis Guenée, 1854 has male genitalia matching the illustration by Lange (1956) of "Aulacodes aechmialis". The original descriptions of aechmialis and it's synonym Hydrophysa plumipedalis Hampson, 1895 seem to somewhat match. The original description and illustration of Paraponyx bosoralis Druce, 1896, another synonym, do not match.
