General DescriptionA small (10-16 mm wingspan) Tortricid moth of the subfamily Olethreutinae. The forewings are light brown, narrow-pointed at the apex and with a number of darker brown areas. The hind wings are sooty-brown in color. Similar in appearance to Bactra verutana but easily distinguished by the male genitalia as the cucullus lacks stout spines. Illustrations of the latter are in both Heinrich (1926) and Miller (1987).
