Diagnosis. Wingspan 32–38 mm. Externally ( Figs 21, 22View FIGURES 21 – 30) the subspecies differs clearly from M. adusta adusta  by its smaller size, dark brown or blackish ground colour of forewings and contrasting colouration with pale and well-defined all elements of pattern. The genitalia are very close to those of M. adusta adusta  , but in the males ( Figs 63, 64View FIGURES 63 – 68): uncus somewhat longer; juxta much broader; and ampulla somewhat shorter; in the female genitalia ( Fig. 103View FIGURES 97 – 104): ostium bursae somewhat broader; ductus bursae more curved than in M. adusta adusta  ; and signum very small.

Distribution. North Atlantic islands. Faroe Islands ( Fibiger et al. 2010), Iceland, Greenland.
