"Most similar to Xylophanes irrorata but upperside of body and forewings deep green rather than pinkish-brown, and hindwings uniform dark brown. Forewing upperside with a dark green postmedian line, with a pale proximal border, that ends on the inner margin in a brown spot; discal spot small, black, with a white centre; costal edge and fringe reddish, the fringe more brown posteriorly and with very few white scales. Basal three-fifths brown, as hindwing upperside. Brown; fringe pale, not distinctly spotted." CATE
