Propleuron with long setae at the ventral margin (from Roháček who illustrates M. lateralis for this character) Head: Frons & occiput black. Yellow colouration near the eyes extends from the anterior part of the frons, down past the antennae and around the mouth opening in a thin band. Antennae: All segments yellow, arista white. Legs: All coxae black with a yellowish tinge. All legs black except femorae. Hind femora yellow with three black rings: the first occupies the entire basal half, the second a broad ring at about 2/3rds the way along and an apical (or subapical) black ring.
