The flat-horn hisser is unique among available hissers due to its extreme flatness. Large adult males are less than a centimeter thick, though gravid females can still be quite thick. Nymphs resemble those of other hissers and only become impressively flattened at adulthood. Adults sport various interesting colors and patterns from circles on the wingbuds to solid cherry-red abdomens.
