Description: A very distinctive reddish-orange and yellow species. The vertex is yellow, contrasting with the rufousy pronotum and scutellum. This reddish-orange coloration tends to extend onto the base of the wings before transitioning to a large yellowish saddle across much of the wings; the wing tips are also rufousy. In some individuals, the yellow saddle is small and surrounded by rufous coloration, while in other individuals the wings are noticeably darker and more brownish than reddish in coloration. The legs are a pale yellow, as is the underside of the body. The male subgenital plates are elongated and pointed.
