Description: A very distinctive species with a bold orange and reddish-brown color pattern. The dark brown outer wing pattern forms an inner diamond-shaped figure with red and white marks on the inside. In some individuals, the inside of the wings lack most orange markings, leaving most of the area white instead. The center of the scutellum is also white. The top of the head, pronotum, and lateral triangles of the scutellum are concolorous with the base of the wings and are reddish-brown; the wing tips are also dark. Adults are 3.2-3.4 mm long. (Dmitriev & Dietrich, 2007)
