See the generic description. The forewing is greyish with a distinct, straight,
blackish, double, transverse postmedial that is centred by a paler, more
ochreous component. There is a somewhat sagittate black mark on the margin at
the tornus, a component of the postmedial. The hindwing has a fine, straight,
obscurely darker brown submarginal line. The species may be confused with H.
& South (below) but is more robust with a stronger forewing fascia. The
tornal black mark is also diagnostic. In irrorata the
punctate submarginal is much more irregular in course and more distinct from the
note. The mainland Asian records of doda
