Description: An orange to brown species with pale legs. The tips of the wings have a distinctive, characteristic white mark that does not extend across the entirety of the apical wing margins, distinguishing this species from the similar P. binotatus. Furthermore, the head typically strongly contrasts with the rest of the body, being black in orange individuals. In darker brown specimens, the contrast between the head and the body is reduced. Macropterous individuals are much darker than brachypters, typically a dark brown, with clear or slightly darkened wings. Adult brachypterous males are around 2.12 mm long, while females are around 2.78 mm; macropterous females are around 3.33 mm. (Bartlett, 2000)
