12mm. This species is large as in carneipennis,
and similarly heavily marked, but distinguished by the straight antemedial and
submarginal fasciae of the forewing. The genitalia have an eighth segment as in
the females associated with glabra above, but the corpus bursae is smaller and more
irregularly shaped, with a distinct taper distally (though it is possibly
unstretched by insertion of a spermatophore in copulation). The paratype appears
to have a bifid scobinate process at the ostium, though this may be disturbed or
damaged in the holotype.
