Found in grassy habitats across North America (Scudder 2004).

Adults can be found from June to August (McPherson 1982).

Neottiglossa undata is elongate, oval and ranges from 4.5-6.0mm. The head is triangular and relatively flat. It is pale yellow to brown with shallow black punctures. There is a slightly raised yellow median line extending from base of clypeus to the apex of the scutellum. Antennae are reddish yellow with the third antennal segment three quarters the length of the second. Leg segments are brown but the base of each femur is pale. They can be distinguished from N. trilineata by smaller size and widespread pale areas on propleura and dorsal surface of head (McPherson 1982).
