The wingspan is 17-28 mm. The forewings are fuscous with patchy whitish irroration and a dark fuscous discal dot above the middle at one-third and a second obliquely elongate before two-thirds. The posterior third of the costal edge is whitish with four dark fuscous dots and with a fine crenulate whitish line just before the termen. The hindwings are fuscous.
