Classification:
Aplocera plagiata/efformata belongs to the subfamily Larentiinae, tribe Chesiadini.
Note:
The Treble-bar Aplocera plagiata and the Lesser Treble-bar Aplocera efformata can easily be confused. A ventral (male) or lateral (female) view of the end of the abdomen is helpful to differentiate between the species.
