The moths of this species are yellow with carmine dots. The dots can be so numerous as to make the wings wholly carmine. The wings are speckled, and have slightly different shades in the basal and marginal halves of the wings. There is a vague dark line separating the halves of the forewings which is incomplete, and does not reach the costa, unlike other species in this genus. The moths have a wingspan of about 4 cms.
The species occurs in :
