Description: A species with a distinctive pattern with two color forms. Most individuals have a broad reddish transverse band across the base of otherwise pale yellowish wings. The red band extends to the costal margins of the wings, rather than tapering as in other species. In form 'dulicis,' the transverse band is a faded reddish color. The top of the head has yellow to orange parallel submedial lines, often with a lateral branch; the midline is pale. The pronotum has a Y, V, or M-shaped yellow or reddish mark. The scutellum is yellowish, with darker lateral triangles; the face and underside of the thorax are pale. Adults are 2.7- 2.9 mm long. (3I)
