Diagnosis. The general forewing pattern elements of this species are as in rubida
but the colour is browner and there is paler longitudinal streaking such
that the dark subapical bar is more prominent. In the male eighth sternite there
is a paddle-shaped cluster of blade-like scales in addition to hair scales; the
