9-10mm. This species is smaller than contrariata. The forewing is
a more golden brown, darkening towards the apex, where the costal triangle is
deeper. The postmedial is fainter, curved slightly parallel to the margin rather
than being straight, and therefore closer to it centrally. In the male genitalia
the uncus is narrower, less bulbous than in contrariata; the harpe
on the valve is not bulbous apically. The genitalia are closer to those of the
Swinhoe, which has a darker forewing with an obscure grey subapical costal
triangle; the apex of the valve harpe is flexed at a right-angle.
