The scutellum is reddish-brown to fulvous to gray; the pronotum is brown to reddish-brown, lighter along the anterior margin. The wings are semihyaline-fulvous with clouded, paler areas on the anterior third and in apical cells. In some specimens, the color markings are absent and the body and wings are fulvous throughout (like the male specimen above). The male subgenital plates are triangular and tapered, the female pregenital sternite has a sinusoidal posterior margin with a median prominent projection. Adult males are 5.0 mm long, females are 6.0 mm. (Hepner, 1942)
