Description: A greenish to yellowish-green species with a distinctive, characteristic dark stripe down the wings along the commissure. The head is pointed, visible from above, and there is a distinct angle to the face near the mouth (visible from the side) (BG). The eyes are typically a bold yellow color. This species also has very long antennae, about the same length as the wings. The female pregenital sternite is broadly, roundedly produced with a slight median notch in the posterior margin. Adults are 6.0-7.0 mm long. (DeLong 1953)

Nymphs are greenish overall with a pointed head, resembling the adult.
