Length: 9–15.0 mm (74 specimens measured).

Head: Head including eyes broader than anterior width of pronotum. Antennae slightly protruding base of pronotum when laid back. A4 broader than A3, slightly cordate, A5–A10 enlarged, cordate, broader than long, A11long, slender, slightly tapering apically, whitish to yellowish, basal part sometimes dark. Frons with broad, longitudinal, slightly elevated gibbosity and laterally with slightly flattened pit. Gular sutures with more or less deep, longitudinal pit, gular process broad, long.
