Wings have 3 spots each. Black body with bluish yellow horizontal band along abdomen. Dark eyes.
Area is a gated man-made lake community, surrounded by rural agricultural land, and some deciduous forest areas. In areas that are not mowed, the land is old fields within the community, and are mowed biannually. Ditchlines and treelines are left untouched.
