Description. Male ( Figs. 9View FIGURES 1–10, 11View FIGURES 11–19). Forewing length 11–12 mm. Forewing ground color dark yellow, with the dorsum noticeably conVeX in basal half; costal margin with one black spot (sometimes three more spots of the row are Visible between cell and dorsal margin); central cell with a long fold with androconial scales; hindwings yellow. Male genitalia ( Fig. 27View FIGURES 27–29). Uncus simple, long, curVed downwards at apical 1/3; distal section of ValVe with straight costal and Ventral margins, apeX rounded from costa to outer margin, but Ventral angle is slightly rounded; harpelike fold U-shaped, not longer than the base of distal saccular process; distal saccular process long (about apical 1/ 3 of the whole sacculus length), more or less broad, with apeX curVed dorsally, not reaches cucullus apeX. Aedeagus straight, short; Vesica with three subbasal diVerticula and one long and C-like curVed distal diVerticulum with apical spine; Vesica ejaculatorius situated subbasally. Female ( Figs. 10View FIGURES 1–10, 12View FIGURES 11–19). Forewing length 14 mm. Forewing ground color dark yellow, with a row of 5 black spots, the middle one shifted outwards; hindwing pale yellow. Female genitalia ( Fig. 38View FIGURES 36–41). OVipositor short and broad; apophyses long and thin, apophyses anteriores one and a half times longer than apophyses posteriores; ductus bursae short, narrow, membranous, with large, round, bulbous Ventral plate; corpus bursae elongated sack-like, narrow, membranous, with one bar-shaped signum; appendiX bursae short, bulbous, situated latero-posteriorly.

Remarks. By the male genitalia structure, this species surely belongs to the new genus. The male genitalia structure is similar to that of the type species M. cernyi  sp. nov., but the harpe-like fold is narrower, the sacculus apeX is almost straight and longer, and the apical diVerticulum of Vesica is longer, C-shaped and has an apical spine. The female genitalia differ from those of M. cernyi  sp. nov. by the shorter apophyses anteriores and posteriores, the much smaller postVaginal plate, the corpus bursae longer and pear-like, and the smaller appendiX bursae.

Distribution. India (Karnataka) ( Singh & Singh 2013; Kirti & Singh 2015), Myanmar (formerly – Burma) ( Holloway 1982); China (Fujian, Yunnan) ( Fang 1982; 2000); Thailand (Černý & Pinratana 2009); Vietnam (DubatoloV 2012); Malaysia (Malakka Peninsula and Borneo) ( Holloway 2001; Bucsek 2012); Singapore ( Hampson 1914); Indonesia (Sumatra, Borneo) ( Strand 1922); Brunei.
