Do not include lures for other target species in the trap when trapping for this target.
Species found in this genus can be hard to distinguish from one another. Keys to distinguish male and female adults of Neoleucinodes spp. in the New World (including N. elegantalis) are found in Capps (1948).
Neoleucinodes elegantalis is almost identical externally to the newly described species N. silvaniae. Neoleucinodes silvaniae can be distinguished from N. elegantalis by the short third labial palpal segment in females and males.
