A bright yellow geometrid with a loose PM band of maroon-brown spots, AM band reduced to two or three spots on the forewing; variable maroon speckling overall. Difficult to separate reliably from X. sospeta without genitalic dissection, see McGuffin (1981). Urticaria is slightly smaller and darker yellow than sospeta, with wider and more extensive maroon markings.
