This is my second spotting of this species but this one has a very thin abdomen where my other one doesn't. Pearl and black fly with clear, iridescent wings. The underside of the abdomen is yellow. The top of the abdomen is gray with horizontal black stripes. The thorax has a horizontal black stripe across it made up of spots. The eyes are large and red. The eyes of the male touch in the center where females don't.
