The original description of Conchylodes concinnalis
Hampson, is available online in the print references below. (1)
The black patch along the forewing costa has a white center compared to the solid patch in Conchylodes ovulalis. The space between the forewing postmedial line and the subterminal line is near equal the space between the subterminal line and terminal line. In Conchylodes ovulalis the subterminal line is much closer to the terminal line.
