There is an ochreous-yellowish elongate spot in the disc at one-fourth, preceded by a blackish tuft. The stigmata is represented by blackish tufts. The plical is placed obliquely before the first discal and is partially edged with ochreous-yellowish. A transverse tuft extends from the second discal to the tornus and there is an ochreous-yellow streak from the costa before the middle just beneath the costa at two-thirds, followed by an oblique wedge-shaped ochreous-yellow mark from the costa.
