Chlumetia postrubra


10-11mm. In facies this species is similar to euthysticha in the forewing, though slightly paler in the medial zone. The hindwings, however, are diagnostically red.

In the female genitalia the general structure is as in euthysticha and brevisigna; the bursa is larger than in the latter and the signa, though round, are more distal and less well defined.
