Field Guide Descriptions: Online Photographs: MPG, BugGuide, iNaturalist, Google, BAMONA, GBIFTechnical Description, Adults: Forbes (1923); Klots (1970)                                                                                 
Adult Markings: A small, cream-colored Crambid. The veins are marked with fine dark lines, with heavier dark streaks in the interspaces (Forbes, 1923); the line opposite the cell is faint, however, compared to those in the other interspaces (Dyar, cited by Klots, 1970). Transverse lines are absent but there is a series of dark spots along the terminus. The discal spot is also dark but ringed with white. Hindwings are nearly white. Eoreuma densella is similar in size, color, and pattern but the veins are white, bounded by dark. "Needs close up or enough detail to see pattern of dark lines on wing" (Scholtens, 2017)
Wingspan: 12-15 mm (Forbes, 1923)
Adult Structural Features: Male reproductive structures are used as key characters in a key provided by Klots (1970); a detailed description and illustrations are also provided.
