Identification
Averages larger than I. rotundalis and is paler. There are pale markings where the lines meet the costa. Along the subterminal line, these extend the full width of the forewing as a faint line. The postmedian line is bent more sharply towards the wingtip than in I. rotundalis. The reniform spot marking is distinct. [Paraphrased from the original species description; see link below. A specimen in hand can be told by the distinctive underside described there.]
