Description: A small species that is orange overall without defined color markings except for "a narrow pale waved marginal band between a narrow ventral marginal line, which is waved, and a few faint markings above [the] margin, especially a pair of faint spots [in the] middle and a faint spot next [to] each ocellus." The vertex is bluntly angled and is 1/3 wider between the eyes than the median length. The female pregenital sternite has the posterior margin broadly, concavely rounded; the inside of this excavation can be slightly waved. The male genital plates are long and slender, triangular in shape. (DeLong 1941)
