From photographs on BOLD database:
Male - relatively dark; thorax light brown, with dark vittae, scutellum and postnotum; abdomen with dark brown basal dark band, occupying about half of the segement, until about 3/4 on segments VI and VII.  Legs yellowish-brown with dark knees, becoming darker from base of Ta1 to Ta5.  Crossvein probably darkened.

Female - dark, thorax brown with vittae, scutellum and postnotum black, abdomen with basal dark brown patches extending from half of segment I to virtually all of segments VII and VIII. Femur and tibia pale, with darkened knees.  Wing length about 5 mm, anterior veins and crossvein dark.

Fourth instar larva Length about 10mm.  A thummi-type, ventral tubules relatively long.  Dark gular region (and frontoclypeus?).  No other information available.

Cytology:  4 relatively short polytene chromosomes with the thummi arm combination AB, CD, EF, G.
