The forewings are dark fuscous, faintly purplish-tinged with a yellowish-white costal blotch near the base, reaching three-fourths across the wing, the posterior edge outwardly oblique.

The posterior half has scattered undefined dots of white scales, especially indicating a postmedian fascia and terminal series. The costal edge is yellowish-white for a short distance beyond the middle. The hindwings are tawny.
