Very similar to Rufoclanis rosea but forewing upperside ground colour beige and noticeably lighter than in Rufoclanis rosea, especially those from Cameroon and Togo, which are more intensely coloured. The hindwing of Rufoclanis audreyae lacks the greyish marginal band that is generally present in Rufoclanis rosea, so that the pink coloration extends to the outer margin.
Male genitalia: Similar in general structure to those of Rufoclanis rosea but with a broad, apically upcurved, sclerotized lobe with a smooth to minutely serrate outer edge, the basal arms of which are widely separated, the upper running to the base of the costa, the lower joining a short, broad, quadrangular dorsal lobe of the harpe. In contrast, in Rufoclanis rosea, the sclerotized lobe is very narrow, its two arms closely approximated on the costa and the bar that joins this to the harpe is long and narrow.
A record from Ngua, Usambara Mts, Tanzania in the HNHM remains to be confirmed.
