Foreleg with the process reaching beyond end of tibia and non-dilated hind tibia. Forewings with arched costa towards apex. Vein 3 from before angle of cell and veins 7, 8 and 9 stalked from before upper angle. Veins 10 and 11 stalked, where vein 11 being joined by a bar to vein 12, and sometimes vein 10 connected with veins 8 and 9. Hindwings with vein 3 from before angle of cell.[1]
