Pachygonidia martini is very similar to Pachygonidia hopfferi, but the forewing outer edge of martini is
rounded at the end of M2, not angulate as in hoppferi.
In martini the outer edge of the dark postmedian band is wavy or toothed, whereas in hoppferi it is very smooth and straight.

Pachygonidia martini and P. hopfferi "can be easily separated by the form of the outer edge of the postmedian transverse band on the forewing. In P. martini it is wavy, whereas in P. hopfferi it is straight. The specimen illustrated by d'Abrera (: 109) as P. hopfferi is P. martini." Haxaire.
Also the forewing outer edge of P. martini is rounded at the end of M2 (not angulate).
