19mm. The diaphanous wing facies appears similar to
that of aureopalpatus, though the specimen is worn. The frons has a deep pinkish
set of markings as in sinuoharpe, but with a slight rufous tinge ventral
to the white area. The palps are rufous-yellow, the legs unspotted. The male
genitalia are distinguished from those of sinuoharpe by the narrow,
sclerotised uncus, the sinous harpe with its greatest flexure subbasally and
subapically, rather than just the former as in sinuoharpe. The valve is
deeper, and the aedeagus has a single apical spine.
