Fore wing macropterous, 0.6 times as long as body; corium and membrane clearly delimited; corium with embolium; medial fracture short, 0.3 times as long as fore wing; costal fracture of hemelytra very long, reaching to the middle of the corium; venation of corium weakly indicated; membrane large, with five closed cells, cells reduced gradually from the inner to the outer. Claval commissure shorter than scutellum length at median line. Hemelytra with only slight modification for mating, the embolar region slightly thickened.  Anterior margin of female sternum VII curve; posterior margin of female sternum VII extremely concave along the midline.
