The moths have a wingspan of 3-4 cm. The male moth has serrated antennae, whereas these are simple in the females. The head has labial palpi that are turned upwards. The forewings in S. grisescens are dark greyish-umber, the terminal line is distinct and the sub-terminal line is indistinct. The transverse posterior line is distinct. The fascia is darker, the disc has two spots; one in the middle and another near the base, and the middle spot on either side is followed by light-umber shades, the distal one being longer. The hindwing is light-umber with a dark shade towards the margin. (CABI 2004)
