The forewings are grey-brown with a slight dark antemedial mark on the costa and an oblique whitish line defined on the outer side by fuscous from the cell to the inner margin. There is a small whitish spot at the middle of the cell and a curved discoidal striga, both defined by fuscous. The postmedial line is represented by a small fuscous spot at the costa with two small whitish spots below it, then by a series of small fuscous spots with whitish points on their outer side. There is a terminal series of minute blackish points. The hindwings are grey-brown with an oblique dark discoidal striga and a slight dark postmedial line defined on the outer side by whitish, bent outwards between veins 5 and 2, then retracted and oblique to above the tornus.
