Diagnosis. The forewings are a uniform deep brick red with only faint
fasciation and a hint of grey suffusion centrally.

abdomen was found to be attached to the otherwise male holotype.

Habitat preference. The species is known only from the holotype, taken at
Sandakan on the coast of Sabah in 1891.
