This is the largest of the three species, with a deeper orange colour to the
more variegated forewings that are also more speckled with black scales; the
characteristic facies elements are present, however. The hindwings are pale
yellow, and a fringe of long scales of the same colour extends over them from
the dorsal edges of the forewings. The genitalia have the tegumen/vinculum/saccus
proportions as in flexilisana, but are
distinguished by a prominent falcate angle to the ventral margin of the sacculus,
and a broad base and strong curvature to the cornutus of the aedeagus.
