, 14-16mm. Both sexes resemble somewhat females of sejuncta
Walker, the males lacking the hindwing
modification described above. The submarginal line, however, is entire, linear,
rather than more irregular and punctate. The rest of the wing is also more
clearly delineated by fine, pale, slightly undulating fasciae. The male
genitalia have a narrower uncus, more tapering valve apex, different
ornamentation on the ventral part of the valve sacculus, and a much smaller
aedeagus and vesica, the latter less convolute.
