Identification
A medium-small (2.7-3.0 cm. ws) somewhat shiny dark reddish brown moth with no significant wing markings. The curved PM line and the veins on the outer third of the FW are very faintly marked in darker scales in most specimens. Normal spots obsolete. The HW is similar but slightly paler and less reddish. The collar has grey tipped scales, resulting in a pale grey collar contrasting with the darker thoracic scaling. Antennae simple. Sexes similar. Similar in appearance to dark specimens of Lacinipolia meditata, but can be separated by the contrasting pale collar of stabilis.
