Pronotum blackish, shining, with the posterior marginal band olive colored, the band extending along the sides to the anterior angles, the posterior angles of the pronotum, however, are fuscous.

Fore wing with the costal margin yellowish to the end of the radial cell, darker beyond; subcostal vein black; first and second cross veins slightly infuscated. The basal cell of each fore wing nearly clear, but blackened along the anterior margin. The flaps of both fore and hind wings are gray in color. Beneath pruinose, black about the eyes, where there are some long, silken, white hairs. The transverse rugse are yellowish and somewhat blackened where they join the shallow frontal sulcus. The legs are chocolate-colored with lighter spots and dashes, the hind pair being lighter colored than the other two pair.
