The adult moths of this species have pale rusty-brown wings. The forewings have four squarish dark marks along the costa, another just touching the margin, and a longish one near the middle of the hind-margin. The hindwings each have an incomplete dark band across the middle, and another along the tornal half of the margin, and an orange patch in-between them. All four wings have doubly concave margins. The legs are longer than the length of the forewing. The wingspan is about 2 cms.
