Wingspan 3.5 cm. Forewing is pale pink and gray with a small black reniform spot, a broad yellow subapical patch, and small black subapical dashes. This notodontid is common and widely distributed in western North America. Moths fly from late spring to late summer. Caterpillars are generalist feeders on the foliage of flowering trees and shrubs such as cherry (Prunus), apple (Malus), hawthorn (Crataegus), oak (Quercus), and dogwood (Cornus), and are occasional pests in orchards.
Similar species: Oligocentria semirufescens is larger, forewing with dark gray median and submarginal patches and a white apical patch.
