Tibia spineless and strongly tufted. Forewings short and broad with non-crenulate (non-scalloped) cilia. Apex rounded, inner margin lobed near base and with a slight tooth of scales at outer angle. Hindwings of male with a ridge and fold on underside running from center of costa to lower angle of cell and then to centre of outer margin.[2]
