The wingspan is 17–24 millimetres (0.67–0.94 in). The head, body and legs white. The forewings are white with gray brown irroration. There is a black costal dash over the base of the cleft and is usually separated from the discal area by a clear white subcostal line. There is a small spot before the cleft. The fringes are contrastingly dark but with extensive white areas. The hindwings are whitish to light gray.[2]
