Photo Gallery and Species Biology

Diagnosis vide MOB. This (crocoptera) and the next species (nebulosa) are very similar in facies, crocoptera being slightly larger with the wings less heavily irrorated with grey such that the pale orange ground colour is more evident. The forewing fasciae are more prominent, the antemedial more oblique in crocoptera, but nebulosa has a conspicuous yellow patch just basal to the postmedial.
