General Description

A medium sized Crambus (20-24 mm wingspan). Forewing pure silvery white, lacking a discal stripe. Hind wing also pure white. North American material belongs to the subspecies innotatellus Wlk. No other crambid has these features, but a tortricid, Eana argentana, is superficially quite similar. The latter, however, has labial palps that are only the length of the head.
