The facies and sexual dimorphism are similar to that of inangulata
except the darker submarginal band is narrower, more clearly composed of two
dark elements on fore- and hindwings, and is less markedly zig-zag in course. On
the hindwings there is a similarly double dark fascia interior to the
submarginal. Both sexes are generally paler than in inangulata,
but the female has a similar pale blue apical area and subdorsal dark spot on
the forewing submarginal. In the male genitalia the valves are bilaterally
symmetric (asymmetric apically in inangulata), and the tongue-like distal part of the
valve extends much further beyond the angle in the ventral margin. The aedeagus
lacks the apical spining of inangulata,
and also basal diverticula to the vesica. The distal diverticulum is less
