Among the traits of Liburniella ornata are a white dorsal stripe bordered in black on the face, vertex, and pronotum. The antennae are banded in black, white, and tan. The wings are mostly hyaline, with some veins bordered in black. The wings also have other darker areas, including one large, broad, elbowed marking in the center and apical area.
One of the more interesting records of this species is that reported by Sparks and co-authors (1986), who collected 13 on oil rigs off the Louisiana coast—including 2 from a rig that was located 160 km offshore.
