The wingspan is about 12.5 mm. The ground colour of the forewings is cream, strigulatred (finely streaked) with ochreous and brownish and with brownish-grey markings, as well as dark brown spots and strigulae. The hindwings are cream tinged with brownish.

Etymology


The original genus name, Worcesteria, refers to Worcester, the type locality of the type-species, but was preoccupied by Worcesteria Banks, 1906, a Diptera genus.[4] Its replacement name, Josefrazowskia, refers to Józef Razowski, who discovered the genus and species. The species name refers to the separate systematic position of the species within the Archipini tribe and is derived from Latin recorndita (meaning well distanced).[5]
