The mesothorax is almost glabrous, and much more shining than the rest of the body. The abdomen is haired all over, but not very thickly, and the hair is longish, and whiter towards the apex. The tibiae and tarsi are covered with short, stiff white hairs, the femora more sparsely with longer, soft hair. At the apex the metanotum is convex, projecting into sharp teeth at the sides, and is very closely united to the petiole, which is longer and a little narrower than it.
