Description: A pale yellow to greenish species with dark eyes and subhyaline forewings. The crown is roundedly produced with a pronounced pointed apex. The male subgenital plates are broad at the base, narrowing to a thin apex with a sinuate lateral margin. The female pregenital sternite has the posterior margin deeply excavated, with the excavation extending much of the length of the sternite, characteristic of this species; the median of the excavation has a small V-shaped notch and is embrowned around the border on either side. Males are 6.7-7.3 mm long, females are 7.0-7.4 mm. (Cwikla 1988)

See the styles here, on the right. Furthermore, the female pregenital sternite
