General DescriptionA small (1.5 – 2.3 cm wingspan) shiny white translucent diurnal moth. The dorsal surface is unmarked; the underside is also unmarked except for light grey or brown along the costa. Antennae simple in both sexes. Cabera variolata is very similar but larger and has a scattering of brownish scales on the wings; it is also not “silky”, and males have feathery bipectinate antennae. Both Rindge (1971) and McGuffin (1981) illustrate adults and genitalia of both sexes of vestaliata.
