Description: A species with a distinctive appearance. It has a mostly pale, almost whitish body with a broad rufousy-brown band; this band varies in shape, but it is always at least as wide as the white space between it and the base of the scutellum (BG). There are small grayish marks on the thorax, head, and part of the wings, and the face is pale. The female pregenital sternite has the posterior margins truncated or slightly produced, and there is a wedge-shaped median tooth. The male genital plates are long and triangular, with narrow apexes that are bluntly pointed. Adults are 4.5-5.0 mm long. (DeLong 1948)
