Diagnosis. C. biclavata, C. propulsaria Walker, C. contiguata Moore and C. cucullata Fletcher all
have dull brown markings on a white ground, and are progressively more heavily
marked in the sequence just given. In the first two the intensity of markings
within the broad hindwing border is even and in propulsaria they are much
more regular and even. In contiguata and cucullata the markings
are more intense or more suffused brown over the posterior two thirds.
Dissection of male genitalia is recommended for certain identification.
