The length of the forewings is about 9.1 mm. The forewings are yellowish brown, but darker orange brown at the costa. The transverse lines consist of blackish scales. The hindwings are pearly white with yellowish or rosy brown terminal area. Adults have been recorded on wing in late September.


The species name refers to Cuiabá, the city which is nearest to the type locality.[2]
