6-7mm. Externally the species is similar to
bulli except the dark mark on the forewing costa is more rectangular than triangular, and may be opposite a slight darkening on the dorsum. The valve shape is falcate as in chamberlaini, but the harpe is shorter, broader, less strongly angled. The aedeagus is short, with a very small triangular spine at the apex. The vesica lacks ornamentation.
