The forewings are uniformly brownish with pale veins. The vertex has two streaks at the anterior edge which may join in the middle and there is an orange-brown transverse band behind this. The anterior of the pronotum has variably dark markings.
Common across much of England, Wales and Ireland, usually on trees, particularly oak.
