13-15mm. This species has a similar proportion of pale green and black on the
forewing as palliviridis but the markings, especially the fine black
transverse fasciae, are more crisply defined. The fasciae are further apart, and
the postmedial is angled rather than having a squarish course around the discal
spot. A fine white submarginal line cuts off the forewing apex, with a similarly
oblique component parallel and posterior to it. The black antemedial has a
narrow green band and then a broader black one basal to it. The male genitalia
are similar to those of the previous three species but have the valve costal
process more tapering and acute. The aedeagus vesica (not everted) appears to
contain a single row of cornuti. The name is derived from the Guenée specimen
