Scutum black; postpronotal lobe yellow (sometimes indistinctly brownish antero-mesally); notopleural callus black; notopleural xanthine absent; lateral and medial postsutural vittae absent. Scutellum yellow, without any dark patterning (except for basal dark margin which is deep in the females). Anepisternum with a yellow subtriangular xanthine from notopleural callus to (or almost to) katepisternum; anteriorly almost reaching postpronotal lobe; not extended onto katepisternum. Laterotergal xanthine confined to katatergite. Thoracic setae. Anterior notopleural seta sometimes present (present in holotype male; absent in females); anterior supra-alar seta absent. Wing:
