This species is largely restricted to the coast line. Its face, thorax and abdomen are all yellowish-brown in young individuals and females, with all but the sides of the thorax becoming vivid red. The thorax lacks stripes laterally. The legs are brown with no black except the spines. The wings are amber or orange in the front half with a yellow orange pterostigma and have black veins in the posterior 2/3 of the wing. The costa is bicolored, being dark basally to the nodus and lighter beyond to the pterostigma. There is a black middorsal stripe on the abdomen.
