Description: A broad-headed species that is tawny to grayish in color, tinged with orange. The vertex is orange with a white margin that is bordered above and below by a black line; the above line is broader either side of the middle and tapers to a very narrow line above the ocelli. The female pregenital sternite has the lateral angles produced and rounded, with an excavation in the middle on either side of a median produced tooth that is broad; often the posterior margin has a sinusoidal, trilobate appearance. The male genital plates are long and slender, gradually tapering to narrow acute tips divergent from one another. Adults are 5.0-5.5 mm long. (DeLong 1941), (DeLong 1948)
