The ground colour of the wings is whitish with a silky sheen. The forewings have a black discoid spot and short black-brown markings at the base. It is also recognizable by the dark clouding in the distal part of the forewing, though this varies greatly in intensity and always leaves free (at least in part) a broad white dentate subterminal line.  On the hindwings there is also a small black central spot and weakly marked gray bands. The black spots on the upperside of the wings appear also on the undersides.
The single brood flies in May and June, with some adults on the wing in autumn, usually in the south, considered to be migrants. Grown caterpillars are green and have a yellow or reddish often interrupted line on the back
