7-8mm. The forewing has the dorsal margin without an angle but very gently
curved. The pattern appears somewhat chequered, with patches of rich brown on a
fawn ground, three set transversely just distal to the postmedial, and a large
and a small one set obliquely basal to the antemedial. The two fasciae
themselves are irregular i course, fine, black, and enclose a more variegated
fawn and brown medial area. The male genitalia have the valve apices squarer
than in other species.
