This species (Fig. 61) is recognized by the dark brown to fuscous (almost black) coloration; shiny, finely granulate pronotum; and the male genitalia, particularly the simple, apically truncate right paramere (Fig. 242) and phallotheca (Fig. 241).
Male (n = 2; holotype measurements in parentheses): Length 4.54 mm (4.54 mm), width 1.32 mm (1.30 mm). Head: Width 0.84 mm (0.83 mm), interocular width 0.32 mm (0.34 mm). Labium: Length 1.40 mm (1.36 mm). Antenna: Segment I, length 0.28 mm (0.30 mm); II, 0.94 mm (0.93 mm); III, 0.48 mm (0.53 mm); IV, 0.50 mm (0.48 mm). Pronotum: Length 0.86 mm (0.86 mm), basal width 1.30 mm (1.28 mm).
Coloration: Head: Dark brown. Antenna: Segment I pale brown, with a dark reddish brown line extending entire length on inner side; segment II black, slightly paler dark brown near base; segments III and IV black. Pronotum: Fuscous. Hemelytron: Fuscous, slightly paler dark reddish brown on basal half; membrane dark smoky brown, paler inside areoles. Ventral surface: Shiny brown, abdomen becoming fuscous. Ostiolar evaporative area: White, with knob at end of scent channel dull brown. Legs: Procoxa brown, middle and hind coxae pale or white with bases fuscous; femora uniformly dark brown, hind femur nearly black with extreme apex pale; tibiae dark reddish brown, hind tibia slender; tarsi and claws brown.
Structure, texture, and vestiture: Head: Granulate, frons transversely rugose. Labium: Extending just to bases of middle coxae. Pronotum: Semishiny, finely granulate, pubescence short, sparse, and recumbent; scutellum granulate, with a band of silvery scale-like setae through middle, intermixed with long, erect, simple setae. Hemelytron: Polished, smooth, with two bands of silvery scale-like setae, a narrow one across base of clavus and a broader one through middle of corium and across apical third of clavus, intermixed with a row of erect, simple setae through middle of clavus.
Male genitalia: Aperture unarmed except for a minute spine just above left paramere. Left paramere (Fig. 240): Apical half enlarged with apex extended and slender, basal half with two processes, the basal one short and acute, the middle one longer, rounded, and apically rounded, acute. Right paramere (Fig. 242): Stout, narrow toward truncate apex, without arms. Phallotheca (Fig. 241): Slender, apically truncate.
