General Description

A relatively small (approx. 2.6 cm wingspan) broad-winged mottled grey moth. Very closely related to and difficult to separate from X. ramaria, X. macdunnoughi, X. iduata and others in the species-group. The median band of lagganata is more even, both in width and in even-ness of the dark scaling than most other species in this species-group. Specimens should be dissected or at least have the genitalia examined for positive identification. Male are antennae strongly bipectinate; pectinations about 1.5x width of shaft at widest point.
