In the adult it can be characterized by V-shaped and slender penes and purple-brown markings surrounding the bulla and base of MA fork in the forewing. In the larva it can be characterized by double serrate cephalic horns and a marginally ridged labrum in the head. Distributional and ecological notes are provided.
