Scutum predominantly black, except for narrow orange area around medial vitta; postpronotal lobe bicoloured (yellow postero-laterally; black antero-mesally); notopleural callus yellow; notopleural xanthine absent; lateral postsutural vitta apparently absent (there is a trace of a very narrow and very short dark brown diagonal stripe posterior to the notopleural suture); medial postsutural vittae present. Scutellum without any dark patterning (except for deep basal dark margin). Anepisternum with a stripe from notopleural callus to katepisternum; extended ventrally onto katepisternum, anteriorly to level of anterior notopleural seta. Laterotergal xanthine confined to katatergite. Thoracic setae. Anterior notopleural seta present; anterior supra-alar seta absent. Wing:
Basal cells bc and c without a covering of microtrichia; cell bm without microtrichia. Narrow subbasal raised section of cell br with extensive covering of microtrichia; partly bare in apical half. Crossvein R-M beyond middle of cell dm. Costal band complete; shallow, not extending below vein R2+3 before wing apex; barely expanded at apex; extended around margin to vein M. Anal streak present (colour extending beyond cell bcu). Cells bc and c hyaline. Without any crossbanding. Legs:
Forefemur pale; mid- and hindfemora bicoloured (pale basally, red-brown in apical quarter). Abdomen:
