Diagnosis. (cf. Figs. 25View FIGURE 25, 27, 29, 31). Head, pronotum, and elytra smooth, not punctate, dark in color markedly contrasting with apex of elytra and abdomen. Antennomere 4 multisetiferous in apical half, in addition to apical ring setae. Pronotum with lateral margin very narrowly reflexed from base to apex, subangulate at mid­lateral setiferous pore. Elytron at basal third depressed, surface uneven, without trace of tubercles, with callus laterally at apical third. Male endophallus with flagellum; flagellum apex barbed.

Dispersal potential. These beetles are fully winged and likely are good dispersers.

Geographic distribution. This widespread genus is found from México south to Brazil, east to French Guiana.

Notes. Four species of eight in the Neotropical Region which constitute this genus occur in Costa Rica. Adults of six additional undescribed species from México and South America are in NMNHAbout NMNH and await revision (Erwin & Ball, in prep).
