This is the smallest Bornean species, with a distinctly angular inner margin to
the forewing pale yellow border, including triangular elements at the dorsum and
from the costa at one-third. The male antennae are ciliate, and there are no
secondary sexual pencils or androconia. The male genitalia have valves of the
short, multiple, asymmetric type, but with the processes much less asymmetric
than in ciliata.
