A large, yellow-brown species with a distinctly rounded, short vertex in front of eyes. The basal antennal segment is longer than the 2nd, as in Asiraca clavicornis, but the anterior tibiae are not flattened. The frons is mostly brown, with some pale spots, often dark-bordered; these are sometimes aligned to form a band. Macropters also occur.
A locally common species on reeds in central and southern England and Wales.
