Original description, Walker 1864
BIDA
Corpus sat robustum: Proboscis conspicua. Palpi squamosi, subarcuati, capitis latitudine plus duplo longiores; articulus 3us 2o vix brevior. Pedes longiusculi, sat graciles. Alae anticae longae, lanceolatae, acutae, margine exteriore recto perobliquo.
Allied to Oecophora. Body rather stout. Proboscis distinct. Palpi squamous, very slightly curved, more than twice longer than the breadth of the head; third joint setiform, nearly as long as the second. Legs smooth, rather long and slender. Wings long, lanceolate; fringe moderately long. Fore wings acute; exterior border straight, very oblique; second inferior vein near the first and the third; fourth remote from the third.

Subsequent description, Meyrick 1906
Bida, Walk.
Head with appressed scales; tongue developed. Antennae in male serrulate, minutely ciliated (1/3), basal joint moderate, without pecten. Labial palpi extremely long, recurved, second joint much exceeding base of antennae, rough-scaled beneath, terminal joint as long as second, somewhat thickened with scales towards base, acute. Forewings with 2 from 4/5, 7 and 8 stalked, 7 to apex, 11 from before middle. Hindwings 1, elongate-ovate, cilia 1/3; 3 and 4 connate, 5-7 nearly parallel. Allied to Acolasta [ = Cryptolechia] and Phaeosaces [ = Cryptolechia], but differing from both in the rough scales of second joint of palpi, which are also exceptionally long.
