This species (Fig. 58) is recognized by the dark brown coloration; the smooth, highly polished pronotum; the male genitalia, particularly the left paramere (Figs 230, 231) with a wing-shaped median process and the C-shaped right paramere (Fig. 233) with a median spine; and the short, stout spine on the male genital aperture just above the left paramere.
Male (n = 2; holotype measurements in parentheses): Length 4.20 mm (3.84 mm), width 1.28 mm (1.24 mm). Head: Width 0.84 mm (0.82 mm), interocular width 0.44 mm (0.42 mm). Labium: Length ca. 1.50 mm [bent] (imbedded in glue). Antenna: Segment I, length 0.26 mm (0.28 mm); II, 0.92 mm (0.91 mm); III, 0.58 mm (0.54 mm); IV, 0.54 mm (0.56 mm). Pronotum: Length 0.84 mm (0.80 mm), basal width 1.10 mm (1.16 mm).
Coloration: Head: Shiny brown to reddish brown. Antenna: Segment I pale brown, with a red mark on basal third; segment II brown to fuscous; segments III and IV brown to fuscous. Pronotum: Brown to fuscous. Scutellum: Brown to fuscous. Hemelytron: Uniformly dark orange brown on basal half, dark brown to fuscous on apical half; membrane smoky brown to black, with a pale spot near apex of cuneus and pale at base between areoles. Ventral surface: Shiny brown, becoming more fuscous on abdomen. Ostiolar evaporative area: White, with enlarged anterior knob at end of scent channel dull red. Legs: Uniformly brown to reddish brown, tarsi slightly paler brown.
Structure, texture, and vestiture: Head: Frons finely transversely rugose, pubescence short, recumbent, with a few long, erect, pale setae along base of vertex and near basal area of clypeus. Labium: Extending to hind coxae. Antenna: Segment II slender, gradually enlarging to apex. Pronotum: Shiny, polished, disc smooth, calli granulate, weakly defined, collar transversely striate; pubescence short, recumbent, and very sparse. Scutellum: With silvery scale-like setae across apical half except apex, intermixed with long, erect, pale, simple setae. Hemelytron: Uniformly polished; with a narrow band of silvery scale-like setae across base of clavus and a wider one through middle of corium and across apical third of clavus, intermixed with a row of four long, erect, pale, simple setae on clavus and three or four on inner corial margin bordering membrane.
Male genitalia: Aperture with a distinct stout spine along margin just above left paramere. Left paramere (Figs 230, 231): Apex long and slender with a short, decurved, truncate apex; basal process stout, rounded apically; middle process wing-like, dorsally serrate arising from within base of V formed by basal and apical processes. Right paramere (Fig. 233): Somewhat stout, bulbous at middle, apical half forming a recurved C with a short spine arising from middle. Phallotheca (Fig. 232): Thickest basally, narrowing apically, with a stout, slightly curving, truncate apex.
The specific epithet “fuscata”, is given to denote the overall dark brown to fuscous coloration.
