IdentificationA medium-size (approx. 3.5 cm wingspan) dark greyish brown moth. Forewings dark greyish brown with the normal lines and spots finely outlined in black scales, the most prominent mark the dark filling between the reniform and orbicular spots. Hindwing tan with dark brown scales lining the veins, and forming a dark discal bar and a broad dark brown terminal band. Hindwing fringe white with a brown base. Antennae fikiform and sexes alike. Most likely to be mistaken for a species of Euxoa or Anarta, both of which have very different genitalia.
