The adult moths of this species are off-white, each forewing having some brown dashes on the costa, a submarginal arc of brown dots, and a brown suffusion, particularly along the hind-margin. The hindwings are off-white, darkening toward the margins. The wingspan is about 3.5 cms.

The species has been found in Australia in

  • Western Australia, and
  • New South Wales.

    The genus Chabuata is inappropriate for this species, but a suitable genus has yet to be described and published.
