This species (Figs 68, 69) is recognized by the overall fuscous coloration; black, granulate pronotum; uniformly white ostiolar auricle; male genitalia, particularly the basally globose and apically slender left paramere (Fig. 254) and quadrate right paramere (Fig. 256) with a serrate dorsal ridge; and the broad, truncate process on the male genital aperture.
Holotype male: Length 4.48 mm, width 1.48 mm. Head: Width 0.96 mm, interocular width 0.38 mm. Labium: Length 1.50 mm. Antenna: Segment I, length 0.32 mm; II, 0.96 mm; III 0.52 mm; IV, 0.46 mm. Pronotum: Length 0.96 mm, basal width 1.26 mm.
Coloration: Head: Fuscous to black. Antenna: Segment I pale brown, inner side with a dark brown mark extending entire length; segment II fuscous to black; segments III and IV black. Pronotum: Black. Scutellum: Fuscous, transversely rugose, covered with silvery scale-like setae except apex, intermixed with long, erect, simple setae. Hemelytron: Uniformly fuscous; membrane fumate or black. Ventral surface: Fuscous. Ostiolar evaporative area: Uniformly white. Legs: Fore coxa brown, middle and hind coxae white and narrowly infuscated at bases; tibiae fuscous, hind tibia slender.
Structure, texture, and vestiture: Head: Weakly shining, granulate, frons transversely rugose, with a shiny spot on either side of vertex adjacent to eye. Labium: Extending to middle coxae. Pronotum: Dull to semishiny, strongly granulate, collar transversely rugose; pubescence short, sparse, and recumbent. Hemelytron: Polished, smooth, with two bands of silvery scale-like setae, a narrow one across base of clavus and continuing onto scutellum and a broader one through middle of corium and across apical third of clavus; also with a few scattered scales on clavus between bands, intermixed with a row of long, erect, simple setae through middle of clavus and a few along inner corial margin near base of membrane.
Male genitalia: Aperture with a short, wide, truncate process on dorsal edge just right of center (position about 1:00); dorsal edge also with numerous long, inwardly directed setae. Left paramere (Fig. 254): Simple, most thickened at base, apex extended into a long, slender, decurved process. Right paramere (Fig. 256): Stout, broad, with a thick, wide process arising from each side. Phallotheca (Fig. 255): Long, stout, with a short, pointed apical tubercle.
The specific epithet “truncata” is given to denote the truncate tergal process on the male aperture.
