Physical description

Rostrum without any trace of basal impression, with a fine deep median channel extending from the tip to the upper part of the vertex, and on each side with a short deep lateral channel. Thorax very short, the sculpture very coarse, but obsolete on the disc, where also there is a vague broad channel; basal band of tomentum rather small. Scutellum almost entirely concealed. Elytra subinflated, convex even at the base, with shallow broad grooves in which are placed coarse punctures. Tarsi without horny projections, but with semimembranous, projecting angles.
Two examples were found of this very distinct species; the male has the elytra considerably less ample than the female, and the punctures are consequently more closely placed.
