Small elongate moth which mimics bark, 8mm long. The upper wings have several patches of large scales which stand upright, looking like chips of bark on a tree truck. The coloring is all in shades of browns and beige. Notice the short sharp little backward-directed spines on the hairy palpi of the head.
