General Description

Wingspread 15-17 mm. A small, dark brown, short-winged moth with a white PM line on both dorsal fore and hind wings, and a robust body. Similar to Loxostege ephippialis but the latter lacks the white PM lines and instead has a large, dark, wedge-shaped area in the center of the dorsal fore wings.
