Differential diagnosis. This species is very similar in habitus, size, and ventral characters to H. neoaccurata   ( Figs. 38 View FIGURE 38 , 39 View FIGURE 39 ). The aedeagi, which also show a relationship, cannot be confused with those of other species, and must be examined for reliable determinations ( Figs. 40, 41 View FIGURES 40–41 ).

Description. Size: holotype (length/width, mm): body (length to elytral apices) 1.60/0.70; head 0.25/0.42; pronotum 0.40/0.53, PA 0.45, PB 0.50; elytra 1.02/0.70. Dorsum of head dark brown to piceous; pronotum brown around dark brown macula that extends, in lighter color, to margin in middle; elytra and legs testaceous to brown; maxillary palpi testaceous.

Frons punctures ca. 1-2xef, slightly larger and denser near eyes than medially; interstices medially weakly shining, 1–3xpd, laterally mcr and dull, 0.5–1xpd. Clypeus mcr laterally, very finely sparsely punctulate medially. Mentum finely sparsely punctulate, interstices shining; postmentum contiguously punctulate. Genae raised, weakly shining, without posterior ridge.

Pronotum laterally slightly emarginate behind middle; anterior margin straight behind eyes, emarginate behind frons, scintilla absent; punctures on disc much larger and deeper than those of frons, interstices shining, 1–2xpd, punctures slightly larger and denser at anterior and posterior; PF1 absent; PF2 very shallow; PF3 moderately deep; PF4 very shallow; area between PF3 and PF4 weakly convex.

Elytra weakly arcuate laterally; summit of posterior declivity at ca. midlength; lateral explanate margin narrow; on basal 1/3 punctures slightly smaller than largest pronotal punctures, punctures becoming finer and more widely spaced toward posterior. Intervals not raised, very weakly shining, on basal 1/3 ca. 1–2xpd, as are interstices between punctures of a row. Apices in dorsal aspect conjointly rounded, in posterior aspect margins forming deep angle with one another.

Ratios of P2 width and plaque shape (P2/w/l/s) ca. 2/1.5/4/5. P1 laminate; median carina sinuate in profile. P2 l/w ca. 4/1, sides parallel, apex blunt, apex raised slightly above mesoventral intercoxal process. Plaques very narrow, parallel, weakly raised, margins not strongly demarcated, located at sides of moderately deep median depression. Metaventrite without midlongitudinal carina between intercoxal process and median depression. AIS width at slightly arcuate posterior margin ca. 2x P2. All tibiae slender, protibiae slightly arcuate, meso- and metatibiae straight. Abdominal apex slightly asymmetrical; last tergite oval, with depression in distal ½, and minute off-center tooth at distal margin. Female (microslide mount, n=1): last tergite moderately sharply rounded, with rather deep apicomedian notch, ca. 10 hooked setae set back from margin ca. ½ length of setae, setae not quite contiguous, median gap rather wide; gonocoxite not midlongitudinally divided, apical margin moderately sharply rounded, transverse ridge evident at border of microreticulation; spermatheca type simple C shape.

Distribution. A very common species, widely distributed in eastern and northeastern South Africa, and Lesotho. There are two disjunct localities known, at the Cape ( Fig. 77 View FIGURES 77–78 ).
