Type species: Cabera unduliferaria Motschulsky   , [1861] 1860, Etudes Ent., 9: 36, by original designation.

Redescription. Body: Antennae filiform in both sexes, male with short cilia, length of each segment in the middle longer than width. Frons flat, bearing a cluster of developed forelock under the frons. Proboscis well developed. Labial palpus rough scaled, about 1 / 4 – 1 / 3 length extending beyond frons. Foreleg normal. Hind tibia with two pairs of spurs, the length of inner ones about two times the outer ones in each pair. Male with a pair of well developed coremata between the seventh and eighth sternite.

Wing-shape: Forewing with costal margin protuberant at base, slightly concave in the middle and shallowlly arced beyond middle; apex nearly rectangle and obtuse; anal angle rounded; outer margin curved and slightly wavy; inner margin straight. Hindwing with costal margin straight; apex and anal angle rounded; outer margin wavy; inner margin straight. Both wings grey to yellowish grey, with several white wavy transverse lines.

Venation ( Fig. 1): Forewing: with two areoles, the first areole small. R 1 diverging before the distal angle of the second areole, R 5 from the distal angle, M 1 shortly stalked with lower margin of areole, cell slightly shorter than half length of forewing, discocellulars curved in the middle, the lower part strongly slanted outwards; M 3 and CuA 1 separate. Hindwing: Sc+R 1 anastomosing with Rs to near the end of cell; Rs and M 1 stalked; discocellulars incurved above middle, M 2 slightly close to M 1; M 3 and CuA 1 separate; 3 A present.

Male genitalia. Uncus long and stout, coniform, strongly sclerotized, ciliate. Tegumen moderately sized. Valva short and narrow, divided into two parts: costal lobe and sacculus; costal lobe slightly sclerotized, with posterior end rounded or occasionally nearly truncate, with a row of dense setae ventrally; sacculus membranous, ventral margin slightly to moderately protruding and sclerotized at base, posterior end blunt or sometimes slightly pointed. Saccus triangular, blunt. Juxta a transverse, curved sclerotized band at base, with a short process extending anteriorly and a long arm extending posteriorly at both ends. Aedeagus long and narrow, cornutus a row of spines on vesica, manica with a cluster of spines.

Female genitalia. Apophyses anteriores very short, apophyses posteriores long and narrow. Tergum, pleurum of the eighth segment and sterigma strongly sclerotized, forming a large complex, armor-shaped sclerite. Ostium bursae and ductus bursae sclerotized. Corpus bursae small, longer than ductus bursae, membranous, without signum.

Distribution. China, Russia (Amur district, Far East district, Ussuri district), Japan, Korea.
