This species has similar markings on the vertex, pronotum and forewings to E. melissae, but is found on water mint Mentha aquatica rather than sage.
The rear spot on the vertex is irregular and variable in shape, rather than rounded. There are two small spots on the face above the antennal bases (absent in E. melissae).
Local in wet grasslands and marshes in southern Britain.
