Fig. A, B, Dominia. It has threadlike antennae and a curled proboscis. The picture is a female and I cannot determine whether the males have feathered antennae, because under 5 or 6 pieces of this kind which I have seen no male has occurred.
The black markings on both sides of the wings has a steel-coloured reflection: what colour, by fig A is shining through the fore wing, which is occupied with white down. This moth is living on the Coromandel coast and is now included in the cabinet of Baron Rengers
