Head as long as wide; ocellar setae III short, on anterior margins of triangle; postocular setae 2 & 4 much shorter than 1, 3 and 5. Pronotum almost without sculpture lines medially, posteroangular setae about 0.7 as long as pronotum. Metanotum with equiangular reticulation, and markings within reticles; median setae not at anterior margin, campaniform sensilla present. Forewing first vein with complete row of closely spaced setae; terminal seta on clavus slightly shorter than sub-terminal seta. Abdominal tergite II with four lateral marginal setae; tergites almost without sculpture mesad of setae S 2; VIII with complete comb of slender microtrichia, but these shorter medially. Sternites III –VII with transverse row of about 10 discal setae; pleurotergites without discal setae.
