There are two small spots of black irroration on the costa towards the base, and beneath the costa in the middle, and four on the costa posteriorly. There is also a dot of blackish irroration near the base in the middle, one in the disc at one-sixth, one on the fold beyond this, and three representing stigmata, the plical rather obliquely before the first discal.
