Description: A very distinctive and recognizable species that is variable in color, with the body and anterior portions of the wings usually mottled with lichen-green, brown, and black coloration. The wings are reticulated with darker veins surrounding translucent wing cells; the base of the wings can show the lichen green and black color pattern found on the thorax. The head is not strongly produced, being rather flat with eyes narrower than the pronotum, and the eyes are narrower than the pronotum. The sides of the face are parallel, and the legs are relatively long, especially the hind legs. The ninth abdominal tergite of the female is elongate, usually hiding the tenth and eleventh tergite. Adults are about one inch in length and resemble small flattened cicadas. (UDEL)
