Cixius is a distinctive genus, but the species are often very hard to separate. As in Tachycixius, there are three keels on the scutellum.
C. nervosus is by far the most common and is one of the larger species. The postclypeus is brownish yellow, much lighter than the frons. The spots along the costal margin are larger than those on veins, and there is usually a brown transverse band on the forewings in the basal half, with faint dark markings posteriorly.
A widespread and common species found on deciduous trees and sshrubs.
Adult: May to October
Length 6.5-8.5 mm
