13-14mm. This species is similar to striatula but somewhat larger with a
more contrasted forewing pattern, the green areas paler, more emerald and more
clearly defined. There is no whitish dash associated with the postmedial. The
male genitalia are similar to those of striatula but those of the female
have a narrower lamella antevaginalis that is posteriorly more distinctly bifid,
and the bursa is less thickened and lacks a cluster of spines.
