Identification
"Ground color varying from dirty luteous to smoky, powdered with black scales. Head and thorax concolorous. Primaries with all the maculation obscure, difficult to make out, with no prominent features. Transverse anterior line dusky, even a little outcurved. Transverse posterior line narrow, dusky, accompanied outwardly by a paler broader, equally even pale line, the lines varying in general course from an even outcurve to an even, not strongly marked, bisinuation. Subterminal line vague, paler, often punctiform, and frequently in great part lost; preceded by a vague darker shade, which is often broken into blotches. A series of obscure terminal dark marks. There is an obscure, indefinate upright median shade, which is outwardly diffuse and slightly darkens the outer portion of the median space. Orbicular small, round, yellow, often wanting. Reniform narrow, upright, yellowish, with or without black dots at the extremities, sometimes entirely black. Secondaries gray to smoky, immaculate or with faint traces of median and subterminal lines." (2)
