Description: This species has mostly clear wings with a large, prominent brown mark. Some of the veins are red, especially on the outer edge of the wing. The first three abdominal segments have mid-dorsal black markings (the 4th segment may be a little dark too, though this varies), characteristic of this species (UDEL). Notably, wing vein CuA is forked, dividing the wing cell into small cell C5 and larger cell C4 (besides C4, C3a is also large); in some other Anotia species, the forked vein and therefore C5 are absent.

Habitats and Life History
Habitats:
Plant Associates: Derbidae are known or assumed to feed on fungal hyphae as immatures (UDEL).
Behavior: Most likely to be found attracted at night with a light.
Comment: This genus can be difficult to identify, and some species vary in color, especially on the wings. This species is most similar to A. robertsonii. A. burnetii has the first three segments of the abdomen with a mid-dorsal stripe, A. robertsonii does not. Additionally, while both species have a similar wing pattern, this is much more bold in robertsonii.
Status: Native
