Diagnosis. The present species may be recognized by the vertical anterior edges of the prosternal carina and the immaculate coria.

Head, pronotum, scutellum, and venter reddish brown; coria yellowish, immaculate; rostrum and legs yellow. Head. Tylus slightly surpassing apices of juga; latter with five marginal pegs becoming smaller toward eye; surface with coarse punctures between eyes. Rostrum reaching middle of mesosternum. Pronotum with transverse impression strongly impressed, marked by a row of slightly coarser punctures; anterior lobe strongly tumid, higher than posterior lobe, virtually impunctate except for two rows laterally and one subapically; posterior lobe, except calli with numerous, close-set punctures. Mesocorium with few scattered punctures apically; exocorium closely punctuate across full width. Prosternal carina higher than rostral segment II, bluntly triangular, anterior margin vertical. Fore femur ventrally with abruptly curved, stout spine near middle; hind femur ventrally with subapical, oblique, straight spine about two-thirds as long as femoral height.
