Mentions: Wing (Fig. 5d): length 8.0–9.5 mm, wing membrane hyaline, narrowly colored light brown along distal veins, without microtrichia; C circumambient (developed around entire wing), anterior wing margin straight; R₂₊₃ distally distinctly arching anteriorly, r₁ open; R₄ terminating anterior to wing apex, distinctly arching anteriorly, stump vein (R₃) absent; r₄ open, R₄ and R₅ diverging from each other; R₅ not reaching C (or wing margin); r₅ closed and petiolate; M₁ not reaching C (or wing margin); cell d closed by base of M₂ and m-m, M₂ and m-m not aligned, r-m situated in distal half of cell d; m₃ open, M₃ and M₄ approximating at C; cua closed at C (non-petiolate); alula well-developed; microtrichia on posterior wing margin arranged in a single plane.
