This is a small Elapid snake, which seldom grows over 2 feet in length, though occasionally specimens are taken over that size. In colour it is commonly blue-black with pairs of narrow white bars running round the dorsal part of the body. Sometimes the two white bars enclose a red, orange or yellow one. The stomach is a pearly grey. The head is not very distinct from the neck, the nose horizontally chisel-shaped, and the eyes small.
