    Leuba Ridgway says

    With a wing span of about 20 mm, this attractive little moth had a cream coloured head, re-curved labial palps and off-white wings with black and grey patterns. The black patterns are quite distinct in this species forming a broken band around the basal area and along the trailing margin of the fore wings.
