Face white; with broad brown band occupying two- fifths to half of face near antennal implant. Occiput yellow, with two darker, largely confluent, patches in dorsal part, sometimes more extensive. Thorax:
Scutum shining brown; dark dispersed pilosity; two transverse bands with silvery pilosity and microtrichosity, one anteriorly of transverse suture, second, less developed, band near dorsocentrals; second band sometimes without microtrichosity or strongly reduced. Postpronotum white. Anepisternum brown, with white band occupying posterodorsal part, its ventral margin not reaching posteroventral corner; with pale pilosity except for few darker setulae in posteroventral corner; one anepisternal seta.
