Identification: The moth has a dark brown or black forewing marked with white. The white marks are around the costa termen and dorsum with one also at three quarters centrally. There may sometimes be more extensive white spotting and in those specimens genitalia dissection may be necessary to identify the species. The head is ochreous.
