General Description

This species and M. aemulataria are very similar in appearance, but are quite distinctive compared to other Macaria. The forewing is creamy white with three usually distinct transverse lines, and a bold brown patch in the middle outer third (distal to the PM line). The forewing is distinctly notched below the apex, accented by a dark fringe. Hindwing with discal spot and AM and PM lines, the margin coming to a distinct point, giving a nearly tailed appearance. M. notata is slightly larger with a paler whitish ground colour compared to aemulataria.
