A distinctively coloured genus with several very similar species in which both the inner margin and corial-claval suture are darkened.
K. virgator one of the more difficult to identify, with the markings very similar to other species, and occurring on the same hosts. Identification depends on microscopic examination of males. Females are inseparable from K. strigilifer.
Recorded from a wide range of English counties, north to Lancashire, on several species of Salix (willows).
