Scutum predominantly red-brown; postpronotal lobe yellow; notopleural callus yellow; notopleural xanthine wedge shaped (connected to notopleural callus), slightly constricted adjacent callus; lateral and medial postsutural vitta absent. Scutellum without any dark patterning (except for red-brown basal margin). Anepisternum with a yellow stripe from notopleural callus to katepisternum; extended onto katepisternum. Laterotergal xanthine confined to katatergite. Thoracic setae. Anterior notopleural seta present but reduced (thin); 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 without microtrichia. Crossvein R-M beyond middle of cell dm. Costal band reduced to a very narrow band, often barely discernable, and a small apical spot. Anal streak absent. Cells bc and c hyaline. Without any crossbanding. Legs:
Forefemur pale, mid- and hindfemur pale to barely discernably bicolored (yellow, pale brown apically). Abdomen:
Predominantly red-brown; tergite IV with a round black sublateral spot; tergite V with a broad medial black stripe. Tergites I-V all fused. Tergite III without pecten; no dense microtrichia adjacent end A1+Cu2; no hindtibia preapical pad. Basal costal section (costagium) with thickened setae.
