General Description

Body is yellowish brown. The head is quadrate, and the surface has prominent rounded reticles. Eyes bulge forward. Antennae are pale yellow, though segments 6 and 7 are brown and segment 5 has a hint of brown in the apical third. Forked or simple sense cones are on antennal segments 3 and 4. Forewings are broad, and are white with a dark brown cross band at the fork of the principle wing vein. Forewing appears to be made of a polygonal network of cells (Wilson, 1975).
