The length of the forewing is at least 8 times its maximum width, and the tip of the forewing is smoothly rounded. Pronotum is saddle-shaped except for ridges where the lateral lobes meet the pronotal disk. Hind femora reach almost to the tips of the forewings. Background color is a medium green. Viewed from above, a series of rear-pointing V's are formed by white veins and depigmented areas along the edges of the forewings where they meet at the midline. In some specimens, some of the wing cells between the depigmented areas are dark brown. The song is a soft whirring. Length is 29-37 mm.
