Antenna filiform; antennomeres in following proportions: 11:4.5:5:5:5:5:5.5:6:6:8. Head shiny, granulate, with vertex rugose and anterior half of frons sculptured by many transverse striae and keels (in specimen from Madagascar, 21°15.05’S 47°24.43’E, head granulate, with slight evanescent striae); frontal line complete; occipital carina complete; POL = 7; OL = 3.5; OOL = 4.5; OPL = 3; TL = 3. Mesoscutum dull, usually strongly granulate, occasionally slightly granulate. Notauli incomplete, reaching approximately 0.25–0.40 × length of mesoscutum.
