The male antennae are serrate to narrowly bipectinate with dense ciliae, but the
facies is otherwise much as in ciliata except
the medial fascia has a fainter second fascia just distad and parallel. The male
genitalia are distinctive in having a marginal, straight, subapical spine
distally to the more sinuous saccular one, flanking the densely setose cucullus.
The aedeagus vesica (not everted) has numerous cornuti. The female genitalia
have a broad corpus bursae and a long, reflexed appendix bursae. There are
fields of long spines in the basal, slightly sclerotised part of the appendix,
and a few also in the neck of the ductus. There is a finer scobination of
shorter spines in the distal part of the corpus bursae.
