Evonima maculata

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.
