When freshly emerged from the pupa the ground-colour is delicate light green, but this fades to white.There are two white medial lines on fore and hindwings.The white postmedian line is on both wings almost entirely parallel to the distal margin, and not dentate.The hindwing is slightly angled. The larva mainly feed on various trees and bushes, including Betula, Crataegus and Quercus species. \n* \n* \n* \n*
