Characteristics

The wingspan is about 16 mm. The forewings are fuscous, sprinkled with whitish and sometimes with dark fuscous, towards the costa posteriorly much suffused with white. There is a small dark fuscous spot on the base of the costa and a white mark from the base in the middle, as well as narrow very oblique dark fuscous marks from the costa at one-fifth, and before and beyond the middle, with patches of ferruginous suffusion beneath them. A streak of ferruginous suffusion, including some black scales, is found in the disc from one-fourth to three-fourths, and another on the fold. There is also a series of blackish marks beneath the posterior third of the costa and along the termen, preceded by a rather broad ferruginous suffusion. The hindwings are pale grey, darker posteriorly.
