Diagnosis vide Moths of Borneo: The species (Avatha garthei) is similar to bubo but slightly more delicate. Differences from bubo include: a distinctly paler, irregular submarginal fascia in a more uniform submarginal zone; a definite convexity to the distal border of the hieroglyph at its hook; a slightly concave distal border to the antemedial black patch, that is then angled obtusely more anteriorly where it grades to brown.
