The wingspan is 35–40 mm. Notodonta dromedarius has grey or dark brown forewings with rusty and yellowish stains. A broken rust-brown band runs along the outside edge of the forewing. There is a small discal spot, a postmedial crossline which is often broken and outer margins which are suffused dark red. The hindwings are usually pale grey-brown with dark veining. The colouring is very variable and very dark specimens are found.
