Female macroptera. Colour: body mainly brown, tergites VI and X yellow, fore wing dark with sub-basal area pale, antennal segments I –III and base of IV largely pale, fore and mid legs largely pale, hind femora brown but tibiae yellow.

Structure: Occipital apodeme confluent with posterior margin of eyes, ocellar area with irregular transverse striae, setal pair III on anterior margins of ocellar triangle; antennal segment IV with constricted apical neck and elongate sensorium extending to mid point of V; pronotum striate-reticulate, with many short longitudinal lines between the striae, blotch well-defined; mesonotum and metanotum striate with markings between the striae; metasternal plate with shallow anterior emargination; fore wing second vein with no setae. Tergites II –VI with comb of microtrichia absent medially, VII with minute teeth, VIII with comb of long microtrichia; tergite IX with 2 pairs of mid-dorsal setae; sternites apparently with discal microtrichia medially.

Measurements (holotype female in microns): Body length 1120, Head, length 58, width 160; ocellar setae III length 23. Pronotum length 110, width 185. Fore wing length 700. Antennal segments I –VIII length 25, 38, 60, 69, 50, 55, 10, 13.

Material studied. Holotype female, BRAZIL, Santa Catarina State, Nova Teutônia [Seara], vii.1957, on dead branches (F. Plaumann) ( USNMAbout USNM).
