10-12mm. The facies is somewhat as in trifenestrata and discipunctata,
but the hindwing apex is slightly excavate, and the wings are more a uniform

postmedial that is angled just subdorsally. Its more anterior course is straight
or slightly curved. In the male genitalia the species has a bifid uncus and
forked socii. The valves are relatively short.
