This genus is monobasic, with distinctive facies as noted in the species
description. The venation of the forweing is as in Labanda Walker; the
hindwings have M3 and CuA1 connate.
The male abdomen lacks definite tymbal structures, and the apodemes of the basal
sternite are rather short. The sclerites of the eighth segment have their
ventral margins bilobed, centrally cleft. The genitalia are somewhat careine in
appearance, particularly the valves, and the slender aedeagus has a number of
short, robust cornuti dispersed in the vesica.
The female has the ductus short, the base of the bursa being broader
basally, slightly fluted, tapering into a narrow and more flimsy distal portion.
