Some specimens may have very faint brown or orange antemedian and postmedian lines crossing the forewings and continuing on to the hindwings. The body is shorter and thicker than similar appearing species of geometrid moths, and the labial palps are black; there is also dark shading on the forelegs. The antennae are simple in both sexes, which are alike. See also the geometer moths in the genera Protitame and Cabera.
