species, the blackish markings reduced and more distinctly transverse. The

hindwings are medium greyish brown. The male genitalia are similar to those of
striatula and contrastriatula, but the female genitalia have a more
diamond-shaped lamella antevaginalis and a distinctly narrower bursa that lacks
a group of spines.
