Although similar in size and proportions to the larger Calocosmus species, such as Calocosmus robustus and Calocosmus nigritarsis, it is easily distinguished from all other species and genera of Hispaniolan Hemilophini by having antennomeres 3 and 4 swollen (Martins and Galileo 1999).
Known only as a fossil in Dominican amber that is at least 14 million years old, this species is extinct (Martins and Galileo 1999).
