Moore sensu Martini & Thöny, 1993: 7.
18mm. The facies is generally similar to that of
Moore (see below) in the rather dull green forewings with an oblique, pale
subbasal band and a more irregular and indistinct postmedial; the apical spot is
dark brown but has a much narrower basal sector than basalis. The
subbasal and postmedial meet the dorsum further apart than in basalis,
the postmedial being more sinuous, less angled. The paler basal part of the
hindwing is clouded with brown as in some other species of the jucunda
group but not in basalis. The male genitalia are typical of the
jucunda group with a strong crimp to the costal flange. The aedeagus and
vesica are ornamented similarly to those of calainigrata, but the
aedeagus spines are slightly longer.
