habitat
Undocumented.

Adult collected in July.

identification
The body is unicolorous, and about 2mm in length. The head is closely and distinctly striated transverseley. Antennal segment 3 and the basal portion of segment 4 are yellow, and segment 3 has a brown ring around the apex. Antennal segments 5 to 9 are brown (Stannard, 1968). Sensoria on antennal segment 5 are linear (Bailey, 1951). Forewings have a dark longitudinal band in the posterior margin of the wing, which runs from the base of the wing to the tip (Stannard, 1968).

life history
This species is sexually dimorphic, as females lack a cross band on the forewings that is present in the males (Bailey, 1951). Male and female antennae also differ in length (Bailey, 1951).
