The antennae of the male are serrate (saw-tooth shaped) and fasciculate (bundled). Forewings with vein 10 given off from veins 7, 8 and 9 anastomosing (fusing) with vein 11, and then again with veins 8 and 9 to form a double areole. Hind tibia of male much aborted and modified as a sensory organ. A large tuft of long hair from base of tibia, the distal portion of which is much modified in shape and has only the terminal spur pairs. The inner spur taking the form of a hollow vesicle which is black inside, with an aperture near its base. The first two joints of tarsi bent, and produced outwards into a thin curved corneous (horn-like) wing, forming a shield overlying and protecting the modified spur, the terminal joint of tarsus and ungues very minute.[1]
