7mm. The forewing, with its basal brown circular area and its distal uniform,
dull grey-green colour, resembles “Pardasena” verna somewhat, but the
basal zone is larger, bounded by a double black fascia, and the distal green
area is darker, greyer and lacking paler highlights and dark costal flecks. The
genitalia have Garella features such as a bilobed uncus, scaphial pads
and a short valve process with an elliptical zone of black scales.
