Galomecalpa quatrofascia is a species of moth of the Tortricidae family. It is found in Ecuador (Pichincha Province).

Description[edit]

The wingspan is 34 millimetres (1.3 in). The ground colour of the forewings is cream, but glossy whitish along the edges of markings and mixed brownish-ochreous medially. There are four brownish-ochreous fasciae. The hindwings are cream, slightly tinged with yellowish-brown and with grey-brown strigulation.

Etymology[edit]

The species name refers to number of fasciae of the forewing and is derived from Latin quatro (meaning four).[2]
