The Sleepy Duskywing is similar to the Dreamy Duskywing in that it has no pure white spots and has a band of arrowhead-shaped marks that run down the postmedian forewing. However, it is generally larger than the Dreamy Duskywing, and the band of arrowhead-shaped marks are more distinct and are usually bordered by black on the inside edge.
