The wings are black with white transparent patches that are much smaller, separated more widely by black; the patch anterior to forewing vein CuA2 is absent, the subapical one is very narrow, and the most distal one posterior to CuA2 is short, triangular rather than a quadrilateral. The transparent area of the hindwing is divided centrally. The abdomen has a pale ring two-thirds distally. The male genitalia are as in the typical race.
