It is a large, conspicuous species, about 3 millimetres in length, quite broad, the head nearly circular iu front and constricted behind, the thorax small, the abdomen widening to near the end and terminating abruptly. The head, thorax, and legs are yellowish, with dark margins and spots; the abdominal segments bear lateral whitish fascia1, bordered with I lack.

It is whitish, with a rather broad brownish margin, from which prolongations extend inward upon the sutures. THE PEACOCK GONIOCOTES. Ooniocotes rectangulatus Nitzsch.)
