Forewing length: 12-15 mm (2).
"The forewing is burnt orange in color. ... All of the forewing veins are accented with darker brown. The antemedial line is sharply dentate on the veins and the basal line is absent. The orbicular and claviform marks are absent and the reniform mark is represented by a vague, curved line continuous with the upper part of the median line. The medial area and basal areas are shaded with darker brown along the costal margin. The upper part of the median line is distinct and dark brown, but the portion below the cell is vague and nearly absent. The postmedial line is strongly curved around the position of the reniform mark forming an elongate loop and is minutely dentate on the veins. The subterminal line is an evenly curved line and is slightly dentate on the line" (2).
