Bright red, fuzzy, wingless wasp. The legs, face and underside are black. "Females wingless, very hairy, and may look like large ants but have no node (bump) on "waist" between abdomen and thorax (ants have one or two). Males winged, less hairy, look more like typical wasps, larger than females" This species can be differentiated by D. vestita by the size of its head compared to the rest of the body.
