Description.

See genus description above: the genus is monotypic, and the holotype is the only known specimen of the species.

Habitat and distribution.

The biotope and ecology of this species are unknown, but several characters suggest that it could be a commensal of hymenopterans. The compact habitus and the double setation are observed (almost exclusively) in many myrmecophilous leiodid genera or subgenera, such as Ptomaphagus (Echinocoleus)  Horn in North America, and Synaulus  in North Africa (our observations).
