This flea beetle is more abundant in southerly areas and appears somewhat earlier in the spring than other related species. Adults are 2.0-2.5 mm long, and black with a metallic blue or metallic green sheen and very finely punctured elytra (cf. Phyllotreta consobrina, above); the antennae are entirely black; the legs are black with brownish tibiae. Larvae are mainly white with reduced thoracic and abdominal plates. Adults feed on various members of the Brassicaceae, and larvae attack the roots of such plants.
