Original text associated with this figure:
Figure 336 represents the venation of the wings of the type species of the family, Berotha insolita
, which is found in India, and to which our species are closely allied. The fore wings are falcate, which is not true of certain exotic genera; the humeral cross-vein is not recurved; many of the transverse veins between the costa and the subcosta are forked; the radial sector bears definitive accessory veins; and there is a single series of gradate veins in the radial area. In the hind wings the first radio-medial cross-vein is transverse; vein Cu2 is wanting; and the area between the margin of the wing and veins 1st A and Cu1 is narrow and largely occupied by the fanlike tips of the accessory veins.
