, dark brown setae (Fig.
They are of different size and shape relative to each other and vary from oblong to narrowly elongate-triangulate or lanceolate
Sensilli (65-73) with long stalk and elongate lanceolate
head; sensillar heads with several poorly developed barbs in anterior part (visible only under high magnification).

Both the early lanceolate
ones and the later fish-tailed ones were inspired by daggers of flint or metal from the continent: the lanceolate
ones indicating contacts with the Bell Beaker culture in south-west Europe and England, the fishtail ones with the Unetice culture south of the Baltic.
Leaves alternate; sessile to short-petiolate; blades simple to pinnately compound, with or without terminal tendrils, linear, subulate, lanceolate
to ovate, pinnately to one-veined, margin entire to runcinate, sometimes revolute, glabrous to pubescent.
The abdomen is dark grey and has a lanceolate
yellow heart mark in its anterior half.
