5. Either: forewing (a1, a2) with fuscate regions near venation, or female antenna (b1) with 1 or 2 white funicular segments in contrast to the other segments (rarely basal halves of postanellar flagellomeres white in contrast to dark apical halves). Forewing with at most 1 setal track extending from stigmal apex (this extending from the uncus and defining the radial cell).

Astichus Förster, 1856
