6mm. The facies is similar to that of
but with darker grey shading medially and subbasally on the costa. The male
genitalia are distinguished by a strongly developed juxta with a bifid spine
dorsally. The valves are sinuous, apically acute, and the harpe is rather
scoop-like. The aedeagus lacks ornamentation. A male from Sikkim (slide 17621)
has similar facies and development of the juxta, though lacking the bifid spine,
but the valve apex is more rounded with a central spur, and the harpe is more
zig-zag in shape.
