Body. Setae red brown, or dark red brown, or dark brown to black (dark brown in holotype).
Thorax. Mesonotum length 4–5 mm (4.5, n=1, Zucchi 1984). Basal scutellar seta "marrom-escuras", Zucchi 1984. Mesonotum yellow, or orange. Scutum mesonotal stripes indistinct in holotype, Zucchi 1984; without brown vittae. Subscutellum entirely yellow to orange. Mediotergite entirely yellow to orange.
Wings. Wing length 8.5–10.5 mm (9.5, n=1, Zucchi 1984). Wing pattern typical Anastrepha pattern (S-band complete or at most interrupted at crossvein r-m, C-band and at least proximal arm of V-band present). C-band broadly extending to vein M in cell br along cell bm; covering base of cell r2+3; yellow or orange area posterior to pterostigma broad, extending distally into cells r1 and r2+3 at least to level of midlength of pterostigma. C-band and S-band separated (by hyaline band from cell bm to costal margin in cell r1). S-band extended anteriorly to vein R4+5 and covering all of crossvein r-m. Cell bm entirely hyaline or infuscated only along subapical fold. S-band posterior margin without incision in cell cu1. S-band base without extension in middle of cell cu1 to posterior wing margin. S-band middle section predominantly or entirely orange, often with brown margins. Subapical hyaline area in radial cells distal to r-m extending anteriorly to vein R2+3. S-band distal section without marginal hyaline band or spots in cell r2+3 or near apices of R2+3 or R4+5. V-band proximal arm as dark as apical half of S-band; extending more than 1/3 distance from apex of vein Cu1 to apex of vein A1+Cu2; not connected anteriorly to S-band; not connected to S-band in cell dm. V-band distal arm complete; connected to proximal arm of V band. Apex of V-band not extended from vein R4+5 to vein M, hyaline area present between band and vein M. Vein R2+3 strongly sinuous; without accessory vein. Vein R4+5 distal to crossvein r-m more or less evenly curved or not strongly bowed medially. Crossvein dm-cu orientation with anterior end more distal than posterior end.
Abdomen. Oviscape length 9–11 mm (10.0, n=1, Zucchi 1984); ratio (oviscape length/mesonotum length) 2–2.45 (2.22, n=1, Zucchi 1984). Eversible membrane with dorsobasal denticles all sclerotized, in triangular to semicircular pattern, but one medial denticle much larger than others. Eversible membrane with 20–40 denticles ((~30 in Zucchi 1984, fig. 2 of holotype) smaller hooklike dorsobasal denticles, no more than half as long as medial denticle, in suboval pattern). Aculeus tip width aculeus tip missing in holotype, Zucchi 1984.
