Leptoglossus brevirostris…
In addition to the wavy transverse yellowish fascia that follows the line of the transverse veins, the description also mentions that the second antennal segment is about one third longer than the third, the fourth segment being a little longer than the second. Also mentioned is the bronzy membrane, and that the head and pronotum have a silvery-white pubescence and a covering of dark pilose hairs.
