Resembling a small, deeper green Theretra rhesus but forewings shorter and squarer, outer margin less convex, similar in proportion to those of Theretra latreillii latreillii. The green colour is often replaced by brown, probably as a result of the influence of high humidity. Inner margins of tegulae silver (lacking in Theretra rhesus). Forewing upperside with fifth and sixth postmedial lines running parallel over the posterior half of the wing and only narrowly separated on the inner margin, the area between them beige; submarginal line lacks conspicuous vein dots. Male wingspan: 7.09 - 7.55 cm (n = 14).
