Diagnosis: Among the species with digitate protibia and setiferous pronotal punctation, the species resembles O. carinicollis in size and shape of the pronotum, but it has a distinctly finer punctate pronotum. The aedeagus is thick and obtuse at apex, whereas it is thin and acute in O. carinicollis .

Description: Length: 3.1 mm. Colouration: Brown; pronotum and elytra at shoulders reddish; legs, antennae, and anterior margin of clypeus yellow.

Head: 0.37 mm long, 0.58 mm wide; eyes not prominent and as long as temples; sides of fore-head sinuate; anterior edge of clypeus even; without lateral granules; width of anterior edge smaller than width of head in front of eyes; on vertex, setiferous punctation dense and coarse; interstices between punctures half as wide as diameter of punctures; irregular midline impunctate; impunctate midline without microsculpture; surface polished and shiny; on punctate areas of vertex with remains of microsculpture; surface matt or slightly shiny.

Antennae short; slightly longer than head; second antennomere thick and oval; distinctly longer than conical third antennomere; following 3 antennomeres slightly increasing in width and distinctly wider than long; antennomeres 7 to 11 distinctly thicker than preceding antennomeres; antennomere 10 only slightly wider than long.

Pronotum: 0.53 mm long, 0.56 mm wide; widest at anterior angles; sides evenly convergent to posterior widely rounded angles; lateral margin fine; in dorsal aspect, visible throughout its total length; setiferous punctation distinctly finer and sparser than on head; interstices between punctures approximately as wide as diameter of punctures; between normal punctures with sparse micropunctation and weak remains of microsculpture; surface mostly polished and shiny.

Elytra: 0.68 mm long, 0.59 mm wide; ground-sculpture deep and coarse; coarse setiferous punctation nearly invisible in ground-sculpture; surface matt.

Abdomen with coarse setiferous punctation; similar to elytral punctation; surface matt, except impunctate shinier midline.

Protibia: 0.30 mm long, 0.10 mm wide; on outer edge with 8 long spines; 3 apical spines inserted on short digits; WLR: 1.00; posterior face covered with sparse setae; in posterior aspect, inner emargination distinctly visible; in middle, partly covered by posterior inner edge.

Aedeagus with thick apical lobe ending in widely rounded obtuse apex; along inner edge with groups of several sensillae.
