The upper surface of the wing covers (elytra) is covered, almost evenly, in spots and has short hairs which stick out slightly. The markings on the wings are unmistakable. The elytra are bright red with a black patch in the shape of a heart or sometimes a triangle, in the middle. This patch tapers off into a dark, narrow stripe that runs along the inner edge of the elytra to the tips which are also black.
