SeasonalityAdults fly from May to September. IdentificationAdult heads are light yellowish-brown with white setae and the antennae uniform yellowish-brown. The forewings are a yellowish-brown covered lightly with fine setae and the hindwings are whitish. In males, the clasper is relatively horizontal and deeply bifurcate. The lobes are well separated and parallel. The ventral lobe is tapered, acuminate and shorter than the dorsal lobe (Wiggins, 1998).

SeasonalityAdults fly from early June to late August. IdentificationAdult antennae are brown and the vertex of the head dark brown. Spurs are pale brown. Forewings are deep chocolate-brown to a pale yellowish brown, lightly irrorate and the costal are is clear and pale yellow. In males, the cercus and segment 10 processes are equal in length.
