Claw with one row of ca 8–9 teeth increasing in size towards apeX ( Fig. 26View FIGURES 21–26), in contrast to the figure in the original description, where two most apical teeth are drawn as much bigger than others ( Müller-Liebenau 1980a, Fig. 2bView FIGURES 1–4).

Proportions of middle and hind legs: tibia 1.2 of femur length; tarsus 2.6–3.0 times shorter than tibia. Tarsus of middle and hind legs with 2 apical spines (on 1st+2nd and on 3rd tarsomeres). Forewing as in male eXcept diffusive, blackish macula stretched from stigmatic area to apeX.

Abdomen. Abdominal terga and sterna greyish brown. Terga III, IV, VI and VII with pair of dark brown stripes on each side; tergum V with thin stripes nearly absent; tergum VIII with no marks; tergum IX with or without a group of brownish points medially.
