A pale moth with purple tinged wings and fringed trailing margins. Wingspan could have been about 20 mm.Each forewing had a smudged dark patch in the middle of the inner margin which at rest looked like a dark circle. On each wing was also a small dark, slightly posterior to the dark patch. Antennae were swept back. The labial palps appeared to form a "snout" with a short stiff bristle on either side at the tip.

Habitat:

Seen under a bright garden light on a warm night.

Thanks to Wendy Moore for identifying the genus.
