Diagnosis. This and the next species have a similar pale yellow ground colour with
regularly curved postmedials and 'B' shaped markings discally on the wings.
These are smaller in scriptata, a smaller insect overall, and the
forewing postmedial is not angled distad near the costa.
Taxonomic notes. Only females of scriptata have been seen, and only males of the next
species. Conspecificity cannot be ruled out.

Habitat preference. No recently collected material has been seen. Older
material (three specimens) is from lowland localities.
