Head, pronotum, and scutellum dark brown to black, shining, paler along free edges of head and pronotum; clavus and coria translucent yellow, latter with distinct fuscous spot near base and usually faint clouding along apical margin; underside reddish brown to brown; antennae, labium, and legs distinctly paler. Head. Tylus longer than juga; juga with five marginal pegs; surface coarsely punctuate between and posterior to eyes; labium reaching middle coxae. Pronotum with transverse impression moderately impressed, punctuate; anterior lobe, including most of disc of calli, with crowded, prominent punctures; posterior lobe, including umbones, densely punctuate. Mesocorium with few scattered punctures discally; exocorium abundantly punctuate across full width. Prosternal carinae about twice as high as rostral segment II, anterior margin vertical, ventral margin concave. Fore femur with medioventral spine strongly oblique, unequally furcated, with small, subapical tubercle on posteroventral margin; hind femur with ventral, subapical spine very short, oblique, not or weakly bifid.
