This is a reddish-brown to rusty coloured assassin bug with the typically skinny neck, small head and conspicuous proboscis or rostrum and transparent wings.
The nymphs are mainly black with orange abdomens. They go through a number of wingless stages, becoming more like the adult with each moult.
They are fairly slow moving, living in trees and bushes amongst the foliage waiting to ambush their prey.
Adult size: 25-30mm
