As discussed under Loboscelidia castanea  and Loboscelidia collaris  , Loboscelidia nigra  is one of seven species with a triangular frontal projection, complete scrobal sulcus and complete notauli. Dimensions of the antennal articles will separate Loboscelidia nigra  from these species; the scape is less than 3 × as long as broad, flagellomeres I and II are 2.5 × as long as broad or longer and flagellomere XI is 4.5 × as long as broad.
