Diagnosis. Adult ( Figs. 6 View FIGURES 1 – 21 , 27 View FIGURES 22 – 40 ): Wingspan, 13.0 mm. The species is characterized by the extremely large trapezoidal costal patch occupying 1 / 3 the length of costa, with the length of the lower margin nearly same as the upper margin, and an expansible blackish long hairpencil near base on underside of forewing well developed; the second segment of labial palpus in male ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 22 – 40 ) quadrate, upturned, strongly angled near base. The forewing is broad, with obtuse apex; the ground color is grayish, with brownish scales sparsely scattered in basal 1 / 3, densely covered with brownish scales in middle, then grayish white mottled with dark brown scales in distal part of wing. The hindwing has a broadly developed anterior expansion, abruptly oblique beyond middle. The female is unknown.

Male genitalia ( Figs. 46, 46 View FIGURES 44 – 47 a a): Uncus more or less triangular, curved apically, with antero-lateral process, apex pointed. Tegumen short, shorter than valvae. Left valva roundly expanded in basal 1 / 3 on ventral margin, with slender, heavily sclerotized, S-shaped process, extending to 2 / 3 of valva; costa slightly concave beyond middle. Right valva with a large spatulate lobe on ventral margin near base; zone with palmately modified scales in distal end. Phallus strongly curved before middle, then S-shaped.
