Adult Markings: This species is smaller (90% of the time) than hesperidago or citromba when comparing males to males, females to females (J.B. Sullivan, pers. obs.) The median line has an even course across the wing rather than an undulating one, as is the case for hesperidago. This line arches outward at the costa in this species but arches inward in citromba, which also has an even median line.
