Diagnosis. Adult ( Figs. 9, 10 View FIGURES 9 – 14 ). Wingspan: male 33–36 mm, female 34–35 mm. Head and thorax covered with greyish scales, abdomen yellowish-grey; forewing brown, with grey subapical suffusion and whitish subapical streak; wing pattern with dark brown subbasal field, distinct medial shadow, more strongly expressed in costal area, distinct, thin, bordered with whitish postmedial line, diffused subterminal line with two strong blackish dashes; orbicular small traceable, reniform distinct, surrounded with whitish suffusion; terminal line as row of small semilunar streaks; cilia brown; Hindwing yellow, with dark blackish terminal band and subanal dash; cilia greyish. Coremata absent. In male genitalia ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 18 – 20 ) uncus straight, somewhat extended apically, with small apical hook; tegument broad, almost equal to vinculum in length; juxta small, plate-like; valva rather wide basally, narrower mesially, with parallel margins, rounded apical from ventral side, bearing small apical hook, covered with strong setae in apical part; sacculus small; harpe transversal, small, not reach costal margin of valva. Aedeagus rather short, sclerotised apically, with dentate carina; vesica tubular, rather wide, with complex diverticulum in mid and apical extension bearing minute setae-like cornuti. In female genitalia ( Fig. 23 View FIGURES 21 – 24 ) papillae anales quadrangular; apophyses posterior 2 times shorter than anterior ones; antrum very small, cup-like, with medial cut; ductus bursae relatively short and wide, membranous; corpus bursae elongate, with small lateral appendix.

Distribution ( Fig. 29 View FIGURES 25 – 30 ). North India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, South West China, Vietnam, Laos, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Bali. Moths have been collected in May, June, September and October.

Taxonomic note. The species has been treated in the literature as a member of the genus Trisuloides   ( Hampson 1913; Poole 1989), until it was removed to the genus Antitrisuloides   by Holloway (1985). It was incorrectly placed in Acronictinae   by Kononenko & Pinratana (2005).
