Diagnosis: O. schwarzi resembles O. neotropicus , O. opacus and O. opacinotus in size. It can be differentiated from O. opacus by the absence of the distinct microsculpture of the pronotum and from O. opacinotus by the less digitate protibia and the shorter second and third antennomeres that are as long as wide in O. schwarzi , but distinctly longer than wide in O. opacinotus . O. schwarzi highly resembles O. neotropicus , because the antennal structure, the shape and microsculpture of the pronotum and elytra are similar. But O. schwarzi clearly differs by the absence of the protibial digits. Additionally, the pronotal punctation is denser in O. schwarzi than in O. neotropicus and the apical lobe of the aedeagus is long and angulate, whereas it is nearly straight in O. neotropicus .

Description: Length: 5.6 – 6.3 mm. Colouration: Black; legs and antennae yellow.

Head: 0.60 mm wide, 1.1 mm long; eyes small, slightly shorter than temples and not prominent; setiferous punctation moderately dense; impunctate midline widened to anterior and posterior edge; area at base of antennae impunctate; on vertex, interstices between punctures much shorter than diameter of punctures; on clypeus, interstices between punctures distinctly wider than diameter of punctures; several supraocular punctures with longer setae; isodiametric microsculpture deep; surface slightly shiny; surface of impunctate area at base of antennae without microsculpture polished and shiny.

Antennae with oval second and conical third antennomere; both antennomeres equally long; following 3 antennomeres shorter; approximately quadrate; antennomeres 7 to 11 distinctly wider than preceding antennomeres, but also approximately quadrate.

Pronotum: 1.10 mm long, 1.20 mm wide; widest at anterior angles, in anterior half slightly convergent; in posterior half more strongly convergent and slightly emarginate in front of posterior angles; setiferous punctation deeper than on head, but, on average, less dense; punctures in irregular rows; wide midline impunctate; microsculpture isodiametric; surface slightly shiny; in midline meshes of micosculpture more longitudinal.

Elytra: 1.25 mm long, 1.20 mm wide; with dense and deep punctation; punctures in irregular rows; hardly visible between deep coriaceous ground-sculpture; surface less shiny than on the pronotum.

Abdomen with dense setiferous punctation and small impunctate midline; surface without microsculpture, shiny.

Protibia: 0.73 mm long, 0.23 mm wide; 10 spines on outer edge; spines directly inserted on outer edge; WLR: 4.77; in posterior aspect, comb at inner emargination visible throughout its total length; on anterior face with curved row of setiferous punctures; posterior face covered by long yellow setae; setae nearly half as long as protibial width.

Aedeagus rectangularly angulate; apical lobe thick and long; apical lobe with obtuse apex and several sensillae at inner edge.
