Similar to the claviform
setae, they have the apical end bare.

A total of 150 pedicellariae, 100 of which tridentate, 25 claviform
and 25 triphyllous, were extracted from this material.
Ordinary and claviform
trichobothria present on tarsi of palp and legs.
Histologically, the esophageal mucosa presented a stratified squamous epithelium surrounded by a lamina propria with numerous taste tissues, in which two cell types may be identified: the mucosa and claviform
esophagus, thickened next to the base.
Macdunnoughia Kostrowicki, 1961 (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae: Plusiinae) was erected for the French species, Plusia confusa Stephens, 1850 as its type species, and can be readily recognized by the claviform
stigma coalesced or divided and a dark-colored medial area on the forewing, and the remarkable sacculus processus in male genitalia.
English diagnosis: brown greyish; forewing with basal line brown bordered with white and brown; claviform
slightly triangled, annuli dark brown more lighted in the middle; orbicular normal and white; post median line serrated; subterminal area whitish irrorated with dark brown; subterminal line brown; hindwings dark brown, discal dark brown as an arrow head.
is shaped like an inverted trapeze; it has a pair of claviform
lateral lobes, which are separated at the base.
This genus is characterized by 3 pairs of anterior setae on the mesonotum (A2, A3, A4) and four pairs on the metanotum (A2, A3, A4, A5), sensillum t1 on foretarsus claviform
, sensillum b' absent, calyx of maxillary gland smooth and with a helmet-like dorsal appendix, striate band on abdominal segment VIII well developed, and sternite VIII with four setae.
