12-15mm. The forewing facies is more variegated than in the previous three
species, with the fasciation more clearly defined. The male hindwing is
unmodified, and the genitalia are closer to those of albulalis, though
with the ventral termination of the tegumen slightly more hooked and the scaled
blades of the valves more robust.
