Due to the similar overall appearance of the phallus, L. viridis is most similar to L. botosaneanui , L. hispida , and L. chiriquiensis , as discussed under L. botosaneanui . Leucotrichia viridis has two dorsal spines on the inferior appendage, while the other species each bear only a single spine.
