Scoparia declivis is a species of moth in the family Crambidae.[2] It is endemic to New Zealand.[1]

Taxonomy

Scoparia declivis was described by Alfred Philpott in 1918.[3][4] However the placement of this species within the genus Scoparia is in doubt.[1] As a result, this species has also been referred to as Scoparia (s.l.) declivis.[2]

Description

The wingspan is 28–32 mm. The forewings are fuscous-brown, irrorated with white. The basal area is pale up to the first line. This first line is whitish. The hindwings are pale whitish-ochreous. Adults have been recorded on wing in February.[3]
