The wingspan is about 28 mm. The forewings are brown with a slight cupreous tinge. The antemedial line is indistinct, dark, oblique, from the costa to the median nervure, then more erect. There is a pale point in the middle of the cell and a slight whitish discoidal lunule both defined by dark-brown. The postmedial line is dark-brown, slightly incurved below the costa and oblique to vein 2, then retracted to below the end of the cell and excurved at vein 1. The hindwings are brown with a slight cupreous gloss and with a faint dark discoidal bar. The postmedial line is very indistinct, dark, slightly excurved between veins 5 and 2, then retracted to below the end of the cell and oblique to above the tornus.
