Diagnosis. Light brown with contrasting abdominal color pattern, the first two or three segments yellowish brown, the remainder, black. Frons narrow and divergent above (F. I. 9-11, D.I. 2.4). Wings lightly brownish tinted, darker at c, sc, r1 and r2+3. Abdominal stripes fainted. Notopleuron brown, concolour with scutum, sometimes slightly paler.
