The moth has angled wing curves with black on the exterior part of the forewings and brown torwards the interior forewings. and the hindwings. the forewings also have a small white spot and a line in front of it. The abdomen is about 2 cm. thick white five sets of two black spots and a line continuing the forewing line. The specimen was a female due to the tip of the abdomen not having claspers which males have. The size of the abdomen as well. The wingspan of this moth was about 55 mm. with max being about 60 mm.
