Identification
Field Guide Descriptions: Covell (1984)Online Photographs: MPG, BugGuide, iNaturalist, Google, BAMONA, GBIFTechnical Description, Adults: Munroe (1972a)                                                                                 
Adult Markings: The ground color of the forewings is medium gray, dusted and mottled with fuscous; the general effect is a somewhat variegated dull gray (Munroe, 1972). The antemedial line is weak but evident, light gray in color followed by fuscous. It follows a distinctive course, running obliquely in from the costa but taking a right angle or even acute bend at the posterior margin of the cell. It then runs obliquely basad to the inner margin. The postmedial line is fine, weakly denticulate, running obliquely distad from the costa to the obtusely angled median flexure, thence obliquely basad to the inner margin. The orbicular and claviform are short, black dashes, the latter rather obscured by the dark suffusion on the inner half of the median area. The reniform is obscurely X-shaped, black, and connected with a black spot on the costa. The preapical, pretornal and submarginal spots are large, triangular and clearly developed. The fringe is gray and checkered with fuscous.
Forewing Length: 5.5-7 mm (Munroe, 1972)
Adult Structural Features: The wings are fairly narrow with a rounded apex and somewhat rounded and oblique termen (Munroe, 1972)
