Note: Listed as cf. as Hampson (1895) mentions an indistinct antemedial line, wheres the same is quite prominent in both individuals. The presence of white specks on postmedial is diagnostic compared with other members of this genus. Generic and tribal placement needs confirmation. Stüning (2000) believes that this species' genetalia is close to the genus Heterostegane and tribe Baptini.
