Identification
"Superficially resembling Rugosa lora but with structural characters of the Gyponana genus and without the black spots on pronotum. Vertex strongly produced, apex rounded, more than half as long as basal width between eyes. The conspicuous venation causes the elytra to appear roughened. Green, with orange-yellow longitudinal stripes and mottling on vertex, pronotum, and scutellum. Elytra hyaline with dark green velns." — DeLong, 1942
Range
CA-TX
records east of Texas, such as from NC, probably are a result of translocations of this species from California on an ornamental plant.
