Medium-sized moth with a wingspan of 30 to 45 mm. The wings are intricately patterned with various shades of brown and grey providing excellent camouflage. In the centre of each forewing there is a silver-coloured mark shaped like a letter Y or a Greek letter Gamma, the reason for its given name.
Found in an urban zone. This specie occurs in a wide variety of habitats, particularly open areas. It regularly visits gardens to take nectar from the flowers.
