Rostrum longer than the pronotum, posterior half finely punctate and with setae, anterior half with larger puncture and scales, scrobes lateral, antenna inserted behind the middle, setulose, scape almost touching the lower margin of eyes, as large as desmomeres 1 and 2 together, both desmomeres elongate, subequal in length, other desmomeres moniliform. Pronotum broader than anterior margin of elytra, broadest at the middle, constricted in front, flanks transversely swollen at middle. Elytra punctate-striate, 10 striae, broadest at the middle, two laterally flattened tubercles on the fourth interstice at base of elytral declivity, humeri produced, quadrate. Vestiture of abdominal ventrites of setae and recumbent clavate scales. Femora armed with small tooth on inner margin. Pedon sublanceolate, median orifice oval.

Derivation of the specific name. Patronym, named after Enio B. Cano, a coleopterist at Universidad del Valle in Guatemala City.
