The species has nodular male antennae and resembles a small  ceneusalis, though lacking the straight, pale submarginal of that species. The male abdomen has the eighth segment weakly corematous and sclerotised as in penanorum. The uncus is diagnostically bifid, cruciform, the valves ovate, only weakly corematous, with a simple, curved harpe.

Geographical range. Borneo.

Habitat preference.
Apart from the holotype (Sarawak), only one other specimen has been seen, a male from Poring Hot Springs, an area of disturbed forest and secondary growth at about 600m at the foot of G. Kinabalu.
