Description: A fairly distinctive species with a bold, sexually dimorphic color pattern. Males are a pale yellowish-white color with smoky, dark brown apical cells at the tip of the wings. Females are a bright yellow with a thick brown band across the base of the wings; this band, together with the brown apical wing cells, gives the females a double-banded appearance. This species has a relatively flat, narrow but wide head which is similar in width to the pronotum. Adult males are around 3.5 mm long, while females are 3.7-3.9 mm. (Hamilton, 1995)
