L'abdomen feu-doré, le ventre noir, chez le ♂ avec taches feu-doré sur le 2e et 3e stérnité, chez la ♀ seulement le 2e sternite avec reflets dorâtres. Les tempes derrière les yeux moins anguleusement dilatées, les angles postico-latéraux du segment médiaire plus longs, aigus. L'abdomen plus large, un peu moins convexe, à ponctuation dense, beaucoup plus forte que chez la forme typique, très profonde, régulière, mais moins dense, presque épars vers le bord postérieur du 2e tergite. La pubescence sur le 3e tergite évidement plus longue.
