Identification: Aproaerema species that are dark winged with a prominent pale transverse band. It can be interrupted or absent in particularly in A. taeniolella. A. taeniolella also has a matching pale band on the underside of the forewing and a pale spot or broken band on the underwing underside. The forewing band may be slightly curved on taeniolella and cinctella but this is not always the case.A. cinctella has slightly narrower forewings than A. larseniella.
