6-7mm. The forewing facies is much as in the previous three species but the
medial bar is fainter over its central portion. The male genitalia have valves
shaped as in carrei and melanomedia, but the angled harpe is
distally more of a sinuous drop-shape, with weak longitudinal grooving. The
aedeagus is intermediate in breadth between that of
and the other species and is apically oblique as in the former. However, it is
distinguished by a cluster of small spines in the vesica. The valve structure is
somewhat as in the Nepalese
Inoue (1998) comb. n., but the aedeagus vesica of that species has a
scattering of small spines rather than a distinct clump; the forewing has weaker
markings medially and stronger ones more distally.
