Size. Medium, wing length, 6.2-6.3 mm.

Scutum red-brown with a large submedial black area (or areas) and medial orange stripe; postpronotal lobe yellow; notopleural callus yellow posteriorly, red- brown anteriorly; notopleural suture with a trace of possible xanthine isolated from notopleural callus; lateral postsutural vitta absent; medial postsutural vitta present (not always distinct as within medial orange stripe). Scutellum without any dark patterning. Anepisternum with a stripe from notopleural callus to katepisternum; anteriorly with a trace of yellow beyond level of anterior notoplural seta, which almost reaches postpronotal lobe; not always extended onto katepisternum. Laterotergal xanthine confined to katatergite. Thoracic setae. Anterior notopleural seta present; anterior supra-alar seta absent. Wing:
Basal cells bc and c without an almost complete covering of microtrichia; cell bm without microtrichia. Narrow subbasal raised section of cell br with extensive covering of microtrichia. Crossvein R-M beyond middle of cell dm. Costal band complete; deep, extending to vein R4+5 before wing apex; apically expanded into a diagonal spot, narrowly reaching vein M. Anal streak present (colour extending beyond cell bcu) but very short. Cell bc and apical half of cell c coloured (almost as dark as costal band). Crossbanding; broad crossband on R-M and a very short mark on M/DM-Cu junction. Legs:
Forefemur pale with a preapical dark mark; mid- and hindfemora bicoloured (pale basally, black in apical quarter to third). Abdomen:
