Ethmia janzeni

Ethmia janzeni is a moth in the Depressariidae family. It is found from Mexico to San Salvador, as well as in north-western Costa Rica. The habitat consists of dry forests and rain forests.

The length of the forewings is 7.3-8.5 mm. It is similar to the closely related species Ethmia elutella, but differs by having a generally paler color and an ocherous rather than gray hindwing costal hair-pencil. The ground color of the hindwings is white near the base, becoming pale grayish toward the margins.
