Narrow subbasal raised section of cell br with extensive covering of microtrichia. Crossvein R-M beyond middle of cell dm. Costal band complete; deep, extending to vein R4+5 before wing apex; apically expanded into a large spot, reaching below vein M, and starts before end of vein R2+3. Anal streak present (colour extending beyond cell bcu). Cells bc and c slightly coloured (almost as dark as costal band). Without any crossbanding.
