. The forewings are elongate, narrow, the distal margin excavate at the apex and thus anteriorly bidentate. They are fawn in colour with a faintly darker streak running their length to the more posterior angle of the margin. There are slightly darker brownish fasciae, and blackish markings at the reniform, orbicular and, more extensive, subtornally. The hindwings are slightly darker, a rosy brown.

Geographical range. Queensland, Seram, Sulawesi, Borneo.
