( Fig. 1 View Fig 1 )

Redescription. Body size 4.8 – 6.4 mm. Head, rostrum (except for apex), first 4 funicular segments, legs including tarsomeres 1 – 2 (except for apices) and claws, prothorax, and metathoracic ventrite brownish testaceous. Apex of rostrum, including mandible, antennae beyond antennal segment 5, apices of tarsomeres 1 – 3 and 5, external margin of meso- and metatibiae including apex, metathoracic and abdominal ventrites, and elytra shiny dark metallic navy blue. Body vestiture with erect setae, setae somewhat semi-erect on legs. Eyes bulging and wider than vertex, frons distinctly wider than rostral width in female ( Fig. 1A View Fig 1 ), slightly wider in male ( Fig. 1B View Fig 1 ). Rostrum slightly shorter than length of prothorax in both sexes, subcylindrical, moderately widened after antennal insertion in male, mandibles with 2 small external notches. Rostrum in female subconical, strongly constricted medially, gradually and distinctly widened from antennal insertion to apex, mandibles with 3 large external notches. Pronotal lateral margins swollen medially, basal margin slightly wider than anterior margin. Elytra oblong, parallel-sided at basal 3/4, gradually and roundly narrowed from this part toward posterior. Strial punctures separated, finely and regularly paired on elytra. Protibia straight, meso- and metatibiae gently emarginate medially at inner margin.
