The face has black marks in the upper part, and is largely black below. The forewings are a dull whitish with a yellowish leading edge (costa).
A local species which is found mainly in woodlands in the
south-central part of England, although it can be common where it occurs. Perhaps associated with Rosebay Willowherb or Raspberry.
