I just realized that the var flavoconfluens Breuning and no flavoconfluentina as I wrote it is for me a synonym for Chariesthes (Peritragopsis) ficivora !!!
What I noticed in my files since I had seen the typus and others had sent me a picture of the typus too ... More work in perspective ...

So your specimen is P (Paralphitopola) simply sofala!
Now remains to know if sofala and maculosa are not one and the same species ?? What Sebastien had pointed out to me rightly!
What seems possible to me because I do not see any consistent differences?
