General DescriptionA cream-coloured moth with fine, dark brown speckling and three (two on the hindwing) transverse lines. Looks like a slightly larger and duskier C. erythemaria, but lacks the yellow-tan overtones of erythemaria . Identification should be confirmed with genitalic structures, see McGuffin (1981). This species also occurs in Europe, where it is known as the Common Wave.
