7mm. The facies of the forewing is somewhat similar to that of internella
but is marked blackish on satiny white. The double postmedial is more clearly
defined, the outer component distinctly punctate. There are tongues of pale grey
raised scales from the costa medially and antemedially, the latter giving rise
to a fine, zig-zag, black fascia running to the dorsum, bidentate distad (unidentate
broader and more diffuse. The genitalia are atypical, with the dorsal arm of the
valve very narrow and the ventral one broad, the distal border oblique,with a
broad marginal field of basally directed hair-setae. The harpe is rather robust,
set interiorly and basal to the setal field. The aedeagus vesica is elongate,
with a single curved cornutus near the base.
