Diagnosis. Wingspan 43–48 mm. The species is close to M. bathensis  but differs clearly in its larger size and brownish grey colouration with a well-defined pattern. The male genitalia ( Figs 77, 78View FIGURES 75 – 80, 93View FIGURES 87 – 96) differ in the larger subapical dorsal lobe of costa, somewhat shorter, but broader cucullus, narrower and less curved digitus, longer ampulla, shorter carina with longer and stronger sclerotised eversible dorso-lateral bar, shorter band of spinules on terminal diverticulum. The female genitalia ( Fig. 114View FIGURES 113 – 120) differ in the much broader ostium bursae and ductus bursae, narrower corpus bursae and larger signum.

Distribution. Endemic of Taiwan.
