Thaumatopsis crenulatella Kearfott, 1908 male has serrate antenna heavily ciliated and without pectination. The teeth are sub-quadrate and are up to 1-1/2 tines thickness of the stalk. Repandus male also has serrate antennae but each segment has a long pectination projecting from each tooth. The teeth are short and triangular, and project less than the thickness of the stalk. (descriptions based on Kearfott (1908)
There is apparently an undescribed species with antennae intermediate represented by BIN: BOLD:AAZ7137. Kearfott (1908) noted a specimen with this character and speculated that it might be an intermediate form. However, Kearfott’s illustration of repandus does not match the original description. It is possible that BOLD:AAZ7137 represents true repandus and BOLD:AAE7727, with specimens having antennae with long pectination, represents an undescribed species.
