This species runs to couplet 33 in Polhemus (2011), where it produces an illogical result, because the posterior half of the cuneus is brown, but the species does not feed on any genus of Rubiaceae.
Unlike the shortened cuneus exhibited in Dashymeniella (Wolski and Gorczyca, 2012: Figs.
2S), sometimes with reddish tinge; mandibular plate apically reddish; eyes dark reddish; first antennal segment with red subapical ring, antennal segments II-IV, thoracic pleura, and scutellum usually somewhat darker than dorsum; corium with indistinct and narrow, pale, transverse, semitransparent band next to apex of clavus; cuneus apically darkened; membrane pale brown, with more or less darkened base; sometimes corium in apical one-third and sides of pronotum with indistinct reddish tinge, in one specimen few minute reddish markings also occur on legs, thoracic and abdominal venter, and at base of first antennal segment.
1) Costal margins convex, widest across posterior aspect of clavus, strongly convergent posteriorly; embolium very wide, not to weakly deflexed; R + M weakly incised; median flexion line half the length of corium; corium flat; elavus moderately to strongly bi-planar, lateral plane oblique to corium; claval vein indistinct; cuneus small, very short.
Antennal segment II distinctly swollen distally; length from apex of clypeus to base of cuneus 2.
Hemelytron flaming red-orange, with sparsely distributed, short, reclining setae; basal margin of cuneus narrowly whitish; membrane smoky brown, with red-orange vein.
Male forewing: Mostly orangish brown, sometimes with base of clavus darker brown; apex of corium at fracture with white fasciae; cuneus and membrane orangish brown.
DIAGNOSIS: Easily recognized by the ovoid body, smooth and rounded head, usually widely hyaline hemelytra with the partly pigmented apices of the corium and cuneus (Fig.
Hemelytron brown, shining, partly tinged with red, not significantly mottled or speckled; apex of corium and cuneus reddish brown; base of cuneus pale, semitransparent.
STRUCTURE: Body and hemelytra much more rounded than males; brachypterous with the cuneus reduced or obsolete, and membrane greatly reduced.
1): Oblong, short, apex not surpassing apex of genital capsule, the latter exposed dorsally; humeral plate mostly covered by posterolateral angles of pronotum, barely visible in dorsal view; costal margin gently curved; embolium and claval suture faintly impressed; membrane and cuneus absent; apex round or acute.
1, 2): General coloration pale with dense or sparse brown, red or reddish dots, hemelytron proximal to costal fracture and on cuneus in part either with somewhat denser dots or with very dense dots resulting in red suffusion, cuneus suffused with brown or red, proximal portion of cuneus transparent.
