. The general appearance is as in crameri except the forewing postmedial is more as in fulvotaenia but evenly and finely delineated with white. Both the medial to postmedial band and the trapezoidal mark are more straightsided and triangular in shape. The male genitalia are very similar to those of crameri, but the costal process to the valve is more robust, trifid rather than bifid, the superuncus is shorter and broader, and the aedeagus vesica also has slightly different ornamentation as illustrated.
