Adult workers are about 10-16mm long depending on the species. The queens are about 25% longer. Their abdomens are usually banded with yellow and black, several species are white and black. Two northern species are also marked with red. The worker abdominal color pattern is usually distinctive for each species but because it does vary, a series of specimens may be required for identification.
