Description. Male ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES2–9 ): head with red integument, dorsally covered with whitish pubescence; forehead with sparse bristles. Upper ocular lobes contiguous ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES2–9 ). Scape and pedicel black with abundant setae. Antennae exceeding elytral apex at middle of antennomere VII. Antennomeres III–VIII, subequal in length, yellowish at base with a black apical third, coated with light setae on yellow portion, black on apical portion. Antennomeres IX–XI, black, very short, half as long as III–VIII. Prothorax with predominantly reddish integument. Pronotum with central whitish pubescence, with two lateral elongate patches of compact, white pubescence: largest on basal half; smallest on distal half. Mesepimeron with a patch of compact white pubescence. Ventral thorax with black tegument, covered with white decumbent setae, with a compact pubescent patch on mesepimeron and small blemish on the metepisternum apex. Legs reddish. Elytra with reddish integument; with dorsal band of black integument from base to middle; with continuous, whitish pubescence along suture from the base and denser apical patch. Each elytron exhibits three patches of compact white pubescence: smallest on base; one oval, larger and oblique downwards from suture to edge; rounded on apical quarter. Scutellum covered with compact white pubescence. Urosternites black, densely covered with decumbent white setae and small lateral patches of whitish pubescence. Urosternite V with central, longitudinal groove in basal quarter ( Fig. 7 View FIGURES2–9 ). Dimensions in mm. Overall length, 9.22; prothoracic length, 1.17; largest prothoracic width, 1.33; elytral length, 6.78; humeral width, 1.89.

Discussion. The male differs from the female as follows: forehead with sparse bristles; contiguous upper eye lobes; antennae exceeding elytral apex at middle of antennomere VII; central longitudinal groove on urosternite V, a quarter of the segment length. In the female, ( Fig. 9 View FIGURES2–9 ), the forehead without setae and bright; the distance between the upper eye lobes is approximately equal to two rows of ommatidia ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES2–9 ); antennae exceeding elytral apex at middle of antennomere VIII and the central longitudinal groove on urosternite V measures three-quarters of the segment length ( Fig. 8 View FIGURES2–9 ).
