General Description

The body is blackish-brown, though the terminal abdominal segments are lighter, and the legs are white. The head is strongly sculptured with large hexagonal reticulations, but lacks a prominent dorsal ridge. Setae on the head are small and consist of two pairs of widely spaced post-ocular setae, with a seta in front of each posterior ocellus. Terminal antennal segments are very long, and segments 3 and 4 have simple sense cones. The pronotum and sides of the abdominal tergites are covered with large hexagonal reticulations (Wilson, 1975).
