Physical description

Antennæ elongate; scape slender, passing on to the front margin of the thorax; first and second joints of the funiculus elongate, the second slightly longer than the first. Rostrum rather long, canaliculate along the middle; eyes convex. Thorax elongate, rounded at the sides, much narrowed in front; the surface uneven, being coarsely but irregularly punctured and feebly longitudinally impressed along the middle, bearing griseous and grey scales and short depressed setæ. Elytra rather elongate, truncate-emarginate at the base, and slightly constricted immediately behind it; marked with regular series of punctures and clothed with greenish and fuscous scales, distributed in a somewhat irregular manner, but not forming a pattern, also bearing short, suberect, pallid setæ. Legs rather slender, squamose and setose.
A small series was obtained of this species; but I do not observe any sexual distinctions, except that some examples are a little broader than others, and may be females.
