Description

Oblong-obovate, piceous, the antennæ (the club excepted) ferruginous; sparsely clothed with very small brown scales, the prothorax with a line of paler scales along each side of the disc, extending on to the base of the third elytral interstice; the upper surface also set with numerous stiff, blunt, suberect, light and dark setæ, which are uniseriately arranged down each elytral interstice, the legs strongly setose. Head and rostrum comparatively narrow, densely punctate, together about as long as the prothorax, the head feebly canaliculate, the groove extending forward to the v-shaped ridge on the rostrum, the nasal plate smooth; eyes convex, laterally prominent; joint 2 of the funiculus shorter than 1. Prothorax nearly as long as broad, somewhat rounded at the sides, closely punctate and subgranulate. Elytra in the ♀ inflated and at the middle nearly twice as wide as the prothorax, narrower and more oblong in the ♂, with rows of closely placed, coarse, transverse punctures, separated by rather convex interstices, the interstices each with a few smooth scattered granules, the suture mucronate at the tip in the ♀.
