A medium-sized red and black species similar in appearance to Horvathiolus superbus, but larger in size and with a single white spot on the wing membane.
Although well-established in the Channel Islands, this has not yet been recorded as a breeding species on the British mainland. A record of a single adult from a property in Bedfordshire during 2019 most likely relates to an isolated introduction.
Adults and nymphs are probably polyphagous.
Adult: All year
Length 7-9 mm
