5mm. The antennae are distinctly bipectinate, the rami much longer than in parvipectinata and about the same as in bipunctulata and umbrata. The forewing is more variegated, a distinctly paler grey basal to the medial which is in a relatively basal position, and has darker grey diffusing away distad. The postmedial is punctate. The apex of the wing is also suffused with darker grey. The genitalia have the valve apex produced into a curved spine, and the saccular process is a similar spine that terminates at the base of the apical one. There is a single, long, slender cornutus in the aedeagus vesica.
