Description: A highly variable species. Adults have a characteristic pronotal shape that distinguishes this species from other NC treehoppers. Mature females have the front pronotal projection curving backwards, whereas males have shorter projections. Adults have orange colored legs and typically a dark underside to the thorax and abdomen. Adult males are 4.5 mm long while females are 5.0 mm. Nymphs have spiny projections and, as they age, develop a structure on the thorax that is reminiscent of the adults pronotal shape.
