Diagnosis.

The genus is very special in its external characters. It can be easily distinguished from other genera of the subfamily by having a much brighter and conspicuous wing pattern. The valva usually has spines or sclerotized plate medially located in the male genitalia and the oval or rounded corpus bursae have the rounded signa in the female genitalia, which are same as in the genus Stericta  . But it differs from the latter by the shapes of valva and juxta. In general, the wings have an orange to yellow postmedial fascia with dark brown edges. In the male genitalia, the uncus usually has long or short spines laterally located, the sacculus always has two sclerotized processes medially located, and the valva usually has a variously-shaped sclerotized plate in the central area distal to the saccular processes.

Description.

Head covered with dense scales; labial and maxillary palpi upturned; antennae filiform, male with a scape extension covered with dense scales. Both wings with similar patterns, fasciae indistinct except postmedial fascia, postmedial fasciae conspicuous, and smooth at border.

Male genitalia.

Uncus broad, gnathos various. Valva broad, and outer margin usually truncated; costa sclerotized; sacculus well developed, often with hook-like or spine-like processes, usually extending backward to base of valva. Phallus slender, slightly curved.

Female genitalia.

Ovipositor covered with dense setae. Sterigma associated with the ostium bursae appears to be sclerotized. The papillae analis are not extruded and are located within the 8th segment; the sterigma is lightly sclerotized and the lamella postvaginalis is variously sclerotized. Apophysis anterior nearly same length or longer than apophysis posterior. Ductus bursae slender, usually membranous. Corpus bursae elliptic or rounded, usually with two rounded or oval-shaped signa consisting of many minute spines.

Distribution.

China, Russia, Korea, Japan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, New Guinea.
