Pronotum. Anterior margin moderately concave; side margins entire, gently narrowed from base; transverse impression obsolete to absent; with few punctures along transverse impression, on middle of posterior lobe and sometimes behind anterior emargination, remainder of surface impunctate; propleuron shining, impunctate except near acetabulum and in depression; prosternal carinae low, acute; mesopleuron with evaporatorium reaching lateral margin of segment; lateral area impunctate; metapleuron with lateral edge of evaporatorium weakly concave, lateral area impunctate. Scutellum. Surface shining, punctured except at base and apex. Hemelytra. Corium and clavus finely but distinctly alutaceous; exocorium and mesocorium mostly with very weak to obsolete fine punctures, mesocorium also with two rows of coarse punctures paralleling claval suture; clavus with one row and basal part of another row of punctures; costa broadly reflexed, with two setigerous punctures.
