Forewing length: 9.0-11.0 mm. Ecpyrrhorrhoe fimbriata is similar to E. rubiginalis both in appearance and in the male genitalia, but it can be differentiated from it by the relatively smooth and slender postmedial line on both wings (Fig. 10 View Figures 3–12 ), in the male genitalia (Fig. 27 View Figures 22–27 ), by the even width of the valva, dorsal projection of sella absent and the setose, thumb-shaped sella, the weakly sclerotized arms of the juxta with several short spines at apex, and the cluster of spines on the anellus (attached to distal end of phallus in Fig. 27 View Figures 22–27 ).

After examination of the male genitalia of the holotypes of Ebulea fimbriata Moore, 1886 and Ecpyrrhorrhoe angustivalvaris Gao, Zhang & Wang, 2013, we conclude that they are the same species, sharing the same sella, juxta and phallus, even though the valva of the holotype of E. angustivalvaris is slightly narrower.
