13mm. Slightly larger than brunnea, this species also has a more
variegated forewing facies with more extensive pale areas, though of a similar
fawn-brown. The postmedial is more irregular, less strongly angled, and
conspicuously paler, though edged finely with darker brown. The similarly
irregular dark submarginal is also more conspicuous. The hindwings are a darker
brown except broadly along the costa and dorsum. The abdomen has massive
coremata associated with the seventh segment, but the eighth sternite is not so
broadened as in brunnea despite bearing a similar transverse band of
hairlike setae along its distal margin. The genitalia lack socii from the
tegumen and have a narrower, less triangular saccus.
