The length of the forewings is 2.8–2.91 mm. The forewings are golden ochreous with white markings consisting of a very short basal streak, two transverse fasciae, one costal and one dorsal strigulae and two terminal spots. The hindwings are light fuscous with a long greyish fringe.
The larvae feed on Ruizia cordata and Dombeya acutangula. They mine the leaves of their host plant. The mine is tentiform. The underside is slightly elongate or oval and more or less opaque creamy. Mines have been found in mid-June, September and early October.
The species is named after the genus of the host plant.
