Adult D. catalinae black beetles with yellow legs while their larvae are elongated with legs, cream-colored and covered with short fine hairs. The pupae are yellow and spherical. The coloration of the head distinguishes males (orange head) from females (black head). BioDelphastus requires sufficient feed (whitefly eggs) in order to reproduce.
