Length 6.5-8.5 mm. Cixius is a distinctive genus, but the species are often very hard to separate. As in Tachycixius there are three keels on the scutellum. Cixius 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.
Found on deciduous trees and shrubs.
Adult: May to October.
A widespread and common species.
Common in Leicestershire and Rutland.
