This genus contains two fairly large and elongate species in which the forewings have numerous white cross veins and are covered in dark dots. The similar but less common Allygidius commutatus shares these features.
This species has several dark dots on the vertex and lacks the diagonal lines shown by A. modestus. The markings are also generally darker and the ground colour more blue-tinged.
Common throughout much of the UK on deciduous trees, particularly oaks. The nymphs feed on grasses.
Compare: A. modestus
